Bug#132476: dpkg: dselect install eat 100% CPU time

Ok, I see where it goes wrong, I'll fix that in CVS. However the
fix will make dselect abort since it can't read input. This is
on purpose: dselect is an interactive program and not designed
to be run like that. Instead you can use "apt-get dselect-upgrade"
which will do the same thing.

Also, instead of piping yes into the command you should probably
configure apt to use the --force-confdef option for dpkg and set
the debconf frontend to noninteractive, that might work better.
