Bug#564611: console unusuable after upgrade

Package: keyboard-configuration
Version: 1.50
Severity: grave


After upgrading my machine with the latest unstable today, i saw
console-setup being auto-removed (unused package), but thought
keyboard-configuration would probably replace it completely. After
reboot, the consoles are not configured, and i cannot switch from
X to console (freeze screen totally, only reboot corrects it).
Reinstalling console-setup solves the problem.

Investigating, i found xserver-xorg does not depends on console-setup
anymore, and no other installed package depends on it on my system.
As keyboard-configuration uses setupcon provided by console-setup in
its init scripts, i guess it is missing a dependency on console-setup,
or probably better on console-setup | console-setup-mini.
