This is probable a bloody note shown at too hgh priority. Probably
file a bug against the package asking for removal (or priority
lowering) of the note and mention this is debconf abuse.

For tripwire, this is probably because its config script "forgets"
about previous  set value, which is a Bad Thing. Again, file a bug
report against the package.

We need to hunt these bad debconf usage which break d-i automation.

Anyway, you should probably try to set debconf priority to critical,
which will help in avoiding such cases.
