AFAIKT, apt-get will set up all packages that were correctly set up
until the bug. But you are right, it is messy. Sometimes I have to
run apt-get to configure packages a bunch of times just because one
package doesn't configure properly. Each run sets up just a few more packages
so eventually I end up with only one or two broken ones that don't set
up - the rest is fine...
IMO, this would be a whishlist bug against dpkg. But then again, it
is the fault of the faulty packages!
