The second problem _is_ in the graphical frontend. It turns out that
the value of a question is changed even if <GoBack> is selected. In
this respect it behaves different from the regular frontend.
Cloning your report to cdebconf-gtk-udeb for this issue.
This issue may a bit more subtle than this: the frontend may just be
setting a proper default for the question. However, this is still not
desired behavior when GoBack is used.
Ok, i've already seen this before and even filed a BR (#395489).
For single SELECT and MULTISELECT questions, which are all dislayed
using a GtkTreeView, the question's value gets set in debconf database
every time the user clicks/moves on a row.
As a result, the last activated option is always made default for SELECT
questions, no matter the user pressed <Back>.
This was considered a minor bug, so never spent time in fixing it:
should i do it now ?
