So, why do you think that bug has been fixed in 2.0.2-28? I see only
an entry, that -28 has built in some debug code. Do you think the
misuse of debconf causes the failure? I'm just asking, cause I've
read in the log

Error: `etex -ini  -jobname=jadetex -progname=jadetex &latex
jadetex.ini' failed

which should be the real cause of the problem and should be fixed if
this has not been done yet.
