Bug#361872: debconf-copydb: Trashes debconf database in /target



(Keeping Steinar in To: in the hope he'll want to try this one as well ;-)

Works much better with that removed. You were right though that the 
database is completely reorganized...
After some sed and sort magic, I could verify the contents.

The only remaining issue is that after the debconf-copydb all "Owners:" 
fields from the original templates.dat in target are lost.

Only three templates were added:
Name: debian-installer/country
Name: debian-installer/keymap
Name: debian-installer/language

The config.dat looks good too, with the three templates added and a value 
for passwd/username merged.
