Glad to see I wasn't crazy...
I reported this as a bug some time ago, but the maintainer was never
able to reproduce it. My current working theory is that it is a
result of having both debconf and debconf-tiny packages installed; I
cannot definitively state that I have ever seen it happen except when
installing debconf and removing debconf-tiny in a single apt-get.
The freedoms that we enjoy presently are the most important victories of the
White Hats over the past several millennia, and it is vitally important that
we don't give them up now, only because we are frightened.
