When I installed the new version (out of Incoming) I got:

[11:21pm] hamish@hamishpc:~> sudo dpkg -i debconf_0.2.90_all.deb 
(Reading database ... 33513 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to replace debconf (using debconf_0.2.90_all.deb) ...
Unpacking replacement debconf ...
Setting up debconf (0.2.90) ...
debconf: failed to initialize Dialog frontend
debconf: falling back to Text frontend

Is that the workaround? Fall back to text mode? Good enough.

It's a bit surprising that dialog can be broken during a code freeze..
