Which misses a ; after the free statement...

I've also tested cdebconf with the patch, but AFAICT it does not fix the 
issue. If I use network-console and play a bit with the size of the 
window from which I ssh (80x24), I can still reproduce exactly the same 

Moving the cursor up and down changes the active line (security <-> 
volatile) in the multiselect box.

Isn't the real problem that the frontend apparently thinks that showing 
just a single line of a (multi) select list is enough and only splits
