I think you would have experienced this installation failure any time
you upgraded nodm, then; so, not a regression between stretch and
sid. That's good. However, it is a regression since jessie.

I'm not the maintainer, so I'll defer to them.

I have a non-maintainer upload in the DELAYED queue to fix this (and a
couple of other bugs with a good risk/benefit ratio), on the assumption
that it is potentially RC; I'd say it's at least 'important', since
there's an explicitly supported configuration in which the package is
unusable (admittedly, that configuration is one where the package isn't
actually in use) and the failure mode across upgrades from jessie to
stretch is pretty bad. However, I'm happy to cancel that NMU if the
maintainers would rather not have it.
