  I don't know anything about debconf, but one of Joey's recent uploads had
a note about fixing shared templates in the Changelog.  Are you up-to-date?

debconf (0.9.80) unstable; urgency=medium

  * Looks like new shared templates have been ignored ever since 0.9.10!
    Symtoms that installed a second package that shared a template
    with an already installed first did not add the second owner to the
    list of owners. It's possible that this was also responsible for
    sporadic reports of db corruption; the question that should belong
    to a template going away when the only recorded other owner was purged.
  * Added a call in the postinst to a program to clean up after this
