  FWIW I don't trust debconf for this, and takes what the user set in
/etc/default/pdnsd, even if debconf thinks otherwise. So whatever change
this has on the debconf registry content, I don't care, pdnsd should
behave fine.

  For new installs though, it'll do what intended.

  I believe the fix is the proper one knowing what I just said about
pdnsd.config ;)
