I don't think the patch is correct. Debconf is not a registry, the canonical location for the configuration is the configuration files, not the debconf database. Quoting debconf-devel(7): "The issue to watch out for here is that debconf is not intended to be, and must not be used as a registry." I think it also applies when DEBCONF_RECONFIGURE is set. -- Aurelien Jarno GPG: 4096R/1DDD8C9B aurel...@aurel32.net http://www.aurel32.net
