The bug I was describing about list object scrolling has been "fixed"
for a long time, I don't know when exactly.  It may be still there in
boot floppies -- so will be "fixed" as whiptail will be used

Still one thing with modconf : when launched, the cursor isn't upon
the selected line, "Finished. Return to previous menu.", but is at the
bottom-right corner of the screen instead.  By scrolling down once, it
comes to the selected (and empty) next line, so all fall back to
normal. Oh, we can cry about the fact that cursor is put at the end of
line instaed of beginning (with normal list items), but it sounds
minor as it is already on the selected line.
