dselect install get's stuck with console-data config -- please help!


I just switched from Debian Woody stable to testing (by substituting the 'stable' in
/etc/sources.list with 'testing' - I hope that's the right way).

This seemed to go quite smoothly. Afterward the initial dselect *update* and dselect *install* run
had finished, I ran dselect *select* to check out what new packages are available and selected

The download ran for quite a while and then a preconfigure script broke off the message that's
below. I've seen config scripts fail before, but usually that doesn't stall the dselect, this one
does -- I had to ctrl-c -- now my var/cache/apt/archives is filled up with packages and the /tmp/
is full of config scripts.

When I ran dselect *select* again, those packages I selected don't turn up under up-to-date, but
under available, marked "not installed; install (was install)".
I suppose that means the packages are currently missing!

What is this console-data config problem and how can I fix it?
