cdebconf gets confused?

I've been toying about with rootskel, doing things like this:

--- src/sbin/debian-installer   26 Jan 2003 13:36:14 -0000      1.9
+++ src/sbin/debian-installer   15 Feb 2003 10:48:52 -0000

+/usr/share/debconf/frontend /sbin/di-init
 /usr/share/debconf/frontend /usr/bin/main-menu

And di-init looks like this:


. /usr/share/debconf/confmodule

db_set debconf/priority high

/usr/bin/udpkg --configure cdrom-detect
/usr/bin/udpkg --configure cdrom-retriever
/usr/bin/udpkg --configure anna

db_set debconf/priority medium

I.e. what I want to do is try to configure these things and then going
to the menu. When I boot from the image I get from this, I get

(Reading database...)
Can't open file '/usr/share/discover/pci.lst' for reading!
VMware Virtual IDE CDROM Drive

Linux IDE-SCSI emulation layer
kmod: ...
(Updating database...)
(Reading database...)
(Updating database...)
(Reading database...)
CAPB backup

Then it hangs.

Somewhere there's a deadlock (and installing strace and testing debconf
and anna confirms this) but I don't understand why and where. Could it
be a timing problem?

I know that Thorsten has had problems with the progress bars in
cdrom-checker, that something hangs. I wonder if it's the same problem.
