Mutt was having trouble with that .diff - for some reason it's
tagged as "Content-Type: application/pgp-keys".

That needs stronger punctuation and shouldn't talk about debconf -

   Do not use '-F' here. The control socket path is set by a separate

Or maybe just:

   Do not use '-F' here. The control socket path is set independently.
