I think I've flamed about this already.

Except the question about MD5 passwords doesn't get asked anymore, which is
sort of what causes the problem.  I should be uploading a fix shortly.  [If
-19 hasn't been uploaded in the next 24 hours with a fix, poke me again,
what's going to take any time at all is 235386, my debconf is rusty]

er, uh, I believe 222716 was fixed in -14, I've just repeatedly forgotten
to close the bug.

I admit to feeling particularly grumpy at the moment, but I think myself
and Sam Hartman acting as picky gatekeepers to the cvs repository this
lives in has more positive results than not.  You may have just noticed
that if you submit a patch that doesn't leave me shaking my head for some
picky, pedantic reason I will apply it nearly as soon as I see it.
