Bug#756841: tasksel: --task-desc no more works

Package: tasksel
Version: 3.20
Severity: important

Dear Tasksel Maintainers,

acording to the man page, "tasksel --task-desc $task" should give a
description of a task. But all I get is an empty blank line per task:

abe@c-cactus:~$ tasksel --list-tasks
u desktop       Debian desktop environment
u web-server    web server
u print-server  print server
u database-server       SQL database
u dns-server    DNS Server
u file-server   file server
u mail-server   mail server
i ssh-server    SSH server
i laptop        laptop
abe@c-cactus:~$ tasksel --task-desc ssh-server

abe@c-cactus:~$ tasksel --task-desc mail-server

abe@c-cactus:~$ tasksel --list-tasks | awk '{print $2}' | xargs -n1 tasksel --task-desc

abe@c-cactus:~$ echo $LANG

I've seen screenshots where this worked in the past. I though don't know
if they are from Debian Wheezy or Squeeze.
