One can only hope. Actually this may turn out to be my problem (if it
isn't in the installation scripts of another package) as it is probably
handled by the installation script (I just took these over and haven't
looked at the install process for over a year) 
Oh, well, more work ;-)

You are past the hard parts. If you stick with Debian you will never have
to go through an initial install again (well, at least not on this
machine) but when you do, you will, hopefully, find improvements have been
made along the way.

Have fun with your new system, and don't hesitate to post your problems or
confusions to the list.
