Setting console font STILL broken

A friends system recently installed with Debian just booted in 80x50
and set the font incorrectly, resulting in an unreadable screen.
(Only the top half of each character was displayed.)

This bug has been reported at least twice before, and apparently has
yet to be fixed.

The fix is to edit /etc/rc.boot/console as follows.  Could this bug
PLEASE be fixed?

#! /bin/sh
# /etc/init.d/kbd: load appropriate console font and keytable.


echo "Console setup:"
echo -n " "
loadkeys /usr/lib/kbd/keytables/uk.map
#if [ -f /usr/lib/kbd/consolefonts/$font ]
#  echo -n " "
#  setfont /usr/lib/kbd/consolefonts/$font
