You mean that text stays in the "title bar" (top line) of the dialog box,
correct? I have seen the same for other dialogs, but failed to file a bug
report about it until now.
We had a similar issue in the past, which was fixed in cdebconf 0.111.
I suspect that the partial rewrite of cdebconf-gtk code that happened after
the Etch release may have accidentally removed that fix.
Jérémy: could you have a look? See commit r43372 for reference.
