Bug#287036: libdebconfclient - using programs segfault if run outside debconf

Package: cdebconf
Severity: normal
Version: 0.73, 0.72

If I run anna or main-menu from d-i console 2, they segfault. It used to
be possible to speak debconf protocol to them raw, so this segfault is
annoying. The crash happens because deconfclient_new does this:

        client->out = fdopen(3, "a");

This fails and it's set to NULL. Then when debconf_capb or the like runs, the
fputs crashes on the NULL pointer.
