kbd-chooser problems fixed


I've fixed the problem with kbd-chooser crashing the cdebconf frontend
(making it impossible to run it). The problem in this case was that the
template in question (console-tools/archs) didn't have an extended
description, and thus returned NULL. The frontends expected
question_get_field() to return a valid string instead of NULL (as
doc/modules.txt says they can expect), and thus crashed.

The code has been checked into current CVS, so it should go into next
cdebconf upload. I can't find any bugs filed against this (there is one for
kbd-chooser, but that's a different issue), but it should IMO hurry the
cdebconf upload a bit, since the bug makes kbd-chooser (which is one of the
first program the user runs) completely unusable. :-)
