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
