Hi Joey, I was hoping you'd take a look at this. Thanks!

Running at critical priority should be identical to running > at low priority and taking the default for everything. Well, what I see in questions.dat is that no value is assigned when running at critical prio. I guess that "using the default" (which it in fact does) is not the same as "using the first value that is highlighted in the list if the default is not included in the list". When the question is shown the user explicitly selects the non-default value, but at critical prio that never happens. That could be solved by - do a get for current default - do a metaget for the list - if not default in list, set first value from list as default but I really wanted to get other people's opinion on that before even maybe trying to implement it myself. Possibly it is something that really should be solved at debconf level instead. Cheers, FJP
