You probably need to add all the packages that use ucf as well.  See
bug 194152 and all those merged with it for why /dev/tty needs to be
hardcoded in to packages using both debconf and ucf.

I tried to work aound this in hinfo's postinst, but /dev/tty still
seems to be needed when reconfiguring.

I think fixing this debconf bug should be a prerequsite to any mass
bug filing.

With Microsoft, failure is not an option.  It is a standard feature.
