Hi Thomas,

this might (or might not) be solved already in Ubuntu's package, which is ahead
(0.7.2~bzr809).  Now that upstream version 0.7.2 is out, we can probably
attempt to merge changes related to debconf from Ubuntu.

I have done the boring part (updated debian/copyright after finding three new
copyright notices and one new license), so if you or somebody else want to work
on an update to 0.7.2 that would solve this bug and #709173, please go ahead,
the road is clear.

(But I need to add that on my system, the package builds only with sudo, not
with fakeroot)

Have a nice week-end,
