I very much doubt it is related as the version of perl that fixed #480533 
is ancient (included in stable). So if that change had fixed it, then I 
would never have seen the problem when I did.

It may be that *a* solution to this issue could be to move yet more stuff 
to perl-base, but I doubt that is desirable.

IMO console-setup should, if at all possible, make sure that it only uses 
functions available in current perl-base. Neither extending perl-base, 
nor having console-setup depend on perl are desirable solutions.
