Bug#720439: console-setup: /etc/default/console-setup values overwritten on upgrade

Package: console-setup
Version: 1.95
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

A few days ago an update to console-setup arrived in Sid.  I have chosen not to
use the default fonts on my consoles and have set FONTFACE and FONTSIZE to empty
strings only to have them replaced by other values.  The result is a poor quality
font on my hardware and I once again must edit console-setup and reboot for my
chosen settings to take effect.

The package should either not touch locally applied settings, where I presume
/etc/default are to be set, or prompt the administrator to approve the changes
(if the package does so but is not prompting me, a gentle reminder on how to
enable such notifications will be welcome).


- Nate
