It is true, but if you try on a i386 box when menu is not installed it also
abort at startup, because it cannot find /etc/menu-method.

I was expecting (trusting the reporter of #169271) that if no exception was
ever raised, menu would run correctly. To make that happen, you need to have
all the good files in the good places. This is easier if you can install
the package.

Anyway you confort my opinion that nothing can be done about #169271.

There is no record of the ballombe@debian.org package, and no bugs have been
filed against it.
