[ipxe-devel] Debian installer preseed example not working

I'm trying to follow this example to inject a preseed config file into a debian installation: http://ipxe.org/appnote/debian_preseed
iPXE loads the kernel, then normal initrd.gz and the preseed.cfg and then the setup starts but the preseed.cfg file is nowhere to be found.
I also tried to pack the preseed.cfg into a second cpio.gz file, but this also doesn't work.
At this point I'm pretty much stuck.
Are there any known Problems with this? Or any suggestions on how to debug this?

I'm using a Debian Stretch netboot installer (nightly build) with an up-to-date iPXE in an UEFI environment.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen / Kind regards / Saludos cordiales
