Seeing the same behavior on our clients. Successful netboot installation
was possible before end of January (actual dates: Jan 12, 17, 19 & 30).
Preseeding stops at keyboard layout selection. The same preseed file
works with 16.04, 16.10, 17.04 & 17.10 (and 18.04 prior to February)

Also witnessed the error reported above for dhclient
when configuring networking manually. Looking at the installer log,
udhcpd also insisted on configuring the domain name for the systems
(which is detected properly via dhcp hostname as well as set via 'd-i
netcfg/get_domain string' as 'bad')

It appears the entire preseed file is ignored in the later netboot
images. This is quite critical.

If there is a snapshot of an earlier bionic install-tree somewhere (i.e,
from mid-January) this would be of interest.
