Bug#191636: fix to this bug.
As the maintainer of whiptail, I was not aware of this bug, which was
filed against modconf. In the current newt package, whiptail and
whiptail-utf8 were merged; modconf seems to work fine for me now.
(There are some minor graphical issues in utf-8 mode, due to an error in
slang, for which a patch as been submitted; see eg. 195010).
Could you please retest modconf against the latest whiptail, 0.51.4-8;
and if either confirm the bug or close it?
Incidentally, there appear to be a large number of bugs filed against
slang / slang-utf8 that I believe to be fixed by recent uploads. I may
help go through those and close some.

He that would make his own liberty secure must guard even his enemy from
oppression; for if he violates this duty he establishes a precedent that
will reach to himself.
