  you can set debconf to either ask the same questions again and agan
(and again...) or not. if you set it to not to ask old question it uses
your former responses. at least that's what I think isa happening, I
have it set up so that it asks old Qs again and it always asks if the X
should be allowed to start by rootOnly/console/anybody.
