I don't configure anything. I tell cdebootstrap to create a build chroot
and sbuild to build a package. But this clearly fixes it.
I never had such a problem last year, since then I upgraded schroot and
sbuild and recreated my chroot using cdebootstrap -f build. As far as I

that creating a build chroot would set the frontend to noninteractive
I am reassigning this to sbuild and cdebootstrap to get some more
comments and lowering the severity to normal.
