Didn't I say whiptail? Why are you reassigning it to modconf?
Please investigate the problem instead of reassigning blindly.
The bug has some connection to the boot-floppies since it happens
through the boot-floppies/base-system. Something is different
with whiptaill when using the root.bin and using base2_2.tgz.
Both is under control of boot-floppies.
Before reassigning next time, please prove that the bug is in the
package reassigned to.

I'd still call it critical and we have to deal with it, people
aren't able to use modconf *after* installation. This is a showstopper.
Whenever you meet yourself you're in a time loop or in front of a mirror.
