Package: tasksel
Version: 2.15
Severity: grave


I've noticed that when  using the exit  value 2 (display task,  marked
for installation) in a Test-* script tasksel wants to install the task
whatever   choice is done through  the   debconf interface,  even if I
unmark the task.

E.g. :

-- /usr/share/tasksel/foo-task.desc --
Task: foo
Section: foo
Description: Foo task
 Foo task
Packages: foo
Test-foo: foo

-- /usr/lib/tasksel/packages --
echo cantus

-- /usr/lib/tasksel/tests --
exit 2

Moreover when using the remove action:

tasksel remove foo

tasksel first removes all the packages belonging to task foo, but in a
second phase install them again.
