Bug#331679: cdebconf-priority: Impossible to change prio from default to medium



Package: main-menu
Version: 1.08

If I start an installation at default priority and back out to the menu
half way through to set the priority to medium (using cdebconf-priority),
the menu is not shown after the next step is run. Instead the step after
that is run automatically.
The culprit seems to be main-menu which resets the priority to high.

The excerpt from syslog below shows what happens.

main-menu[1257]: DEBUG: Menu item 'partman-base' selected 
main-menu[1257]: DEBUG: configure partman-base, status: 2  
  [...] <!-- Using Go back to exit to menu -->
main-menu[1257]: INFO: Menu item 'partman-base' succeeded but requested to be left unconfigured.
