Package: cdebconf
Severity: important

Now that the kernel boot problem of the d-i access floppy flavour
is cleared up, I found out that cdebconf no longer works out-of-the-box
when there is no newt frontend shared object available.

The access floppy flavour only installs the cdebconf-text frontend.
After successful boot, main-menu seems to loop and
constantly reports that the newt frontend couldn't be loaded

>From what I can see this shouldn't happen since
is actually supposed to adjust the DEBIAN_FRONTEND env var to an
existing frontend.  OTOH, /etc/cdebconf.conf has defaultfe
hardwired to newt.

Frontend autoselection worked fine for the text frontend
several months ago.  Due to the long-standing kernel loader bug,
I wasn't able to retest very often recently, so I can't
pinpoint the exact date when this broke.
