Bug#442287: dpkg-reconfigure segfaults

Package: cdebconf
Version: 0.120
Severity: normal

If I run cdebconf's dpkg-reconfigure on a debconf-using package such as
slrn or debconf, it crashes at the end:

--> VERSION 2.0
<-- 0 2.0
--> CAPB backup
<-- 0 multiselect backup progresscancel
<-- 0
--> INPUT medium debconf/frontend
<-- 30 question skipped
--> INPUT high debconf/priority
<-- 0 question will be asked
<-- 0
--> GO

Debconf prioritizes the questions it asks you. Pick the lowest priority of 
question you want to see:
  - 'critical' only prompts you if the system might break.
    Pick it if you are a newbie, or in a hurry.
  - 'high' is for rather important questions
  - 'medium' is for normal questions
  - 'low' is for control freaks who want to see everything

Note that no matter what level you pick here, you will be able to see every 
question if you reconfigure a package with dpkg-reconfigure.
Ignore questions with a priority less than:
  1. critical      2. high [*]  3. medium      4. low    
Prompt: '?' for help, default=2> 

<-- 0 ok
