[Adduser-devel] Bug#486585: adduser/homedir-permission isn't set the first time running debconf

Package: adduser
Version: 3.108
Severity: minor

Hi I'm not totally sure about this, but I think the following happened
several times for me:

1. I've installed plain etch.
2. dist-upgraded to sid
3. debconf asked me for adduser whether I want system wide readable
home-dirs, and I choose no
4. I do a dpkg-reconfigure adduser,... yes is selected
5. When I select no now, subsequent invokations of dpkg-reconfigure show
the correct value.

Is this possible?! ;)
