I've just checked this on a new VM of Debian Stable (7.8.0) and can
confirm that this is a bug with the Ubuntu packaging, not the Debian
packaging. The Debian package doesn't ask if you want to use your own
certificate, it simply generates a self-signed certificate and starts
using that. Presumably, the Ubuntu Devs decided that people might want
to skip that generation if they had their own certificates already.
