I'm not sure whether you followed the recent developments on the
cdebconf and gtk+2.0 side, but we're slowly reaching a point where stuff
should just work again.

If you try daily builds (built against unstable), the problem should not
appear. Depending on which build you grab, it might still be affected by
#988951 (another cdebconf upload happened a few minutes, to avoid that
issue entirely).

Feel free to confirm! :)


Cheers,
