Bug#411585: cdebconf: values for question not deleted on unregister



Package: cdebconf
Version: 0.113

If a question has been registered to a template, is given a value or the 
seen flag is set, and is later unregistered and then registered again 
(against the same or a different template), cdebconf keeps the old values 
that were set before it was unregistered.

Joey Hess has checked that this behavior is different from debconf, but 
also says that the specs are also probably not clear on what the correct 
behavior should be.

If this is changed, there should probably be a review of components that 
use unregister as they may rely in the current behavior.
