Hi there Chris,

yes I certainly did accept the license. I will try to be more complete
here: it happened somewhere in the new 2.6.28-4 kernels. Someone has
upgraded the dpkg-reconfigure command. It works all in all just great
now.

<below: dpkg-reconfigure -p low debconf ; choose 2. readline +
(priority) 4. low>

Improvements:

when running dpkg-reconfiguring -au (-p low is now automated):

when hit ca-certificates-java, all previous chosen certificates (141!)
are remembered. Just click enter.

Autorisation for PAM options are remembered. Just click enter.
(e.g. 1. unix 2. consolekit 3. libpam-ldap 4. ecrypt* 5. cracklib ....)

flashplugin-nonfree is remembered.

Problem:

previously the install directory had to be typed in manual. The first
time I noticed this:

accept license option was remembered, but displayed as yes; instead of y
(the obvious choice upon previous prompt Y/n).

Also download directory was remembered: /var/cache/flashplugin-nonfree.
Since 2.6.28-4.8 this became deprecated. When I fill in /var/cache
/flashplugin-nonfree the problem occurs. I am now still running dpkg-
reconfigure -au. When that is finished I can still root# rm /var/cache
/flashplugin-nonfree/* ; dpkg-reconfigure flashplugin-nonfree (leave
download directory blank - option yes fir license is remembered - this
was last time anyway)

It seems like 1 kernel a day now with alfa-3, and I run this after every
upgrade requiring reboot. Other than that this command is perfectly
improved! (except some esthetics, like WARNING this + cannot rm that - I
does not bother me and is overread)

Is there a dpkg alternative for this command (like dpkg -i instead of
install something /somewhere)?

Is a gdb-backtrace possible of debconf or gkdebconf? (if needed)

Should I try: $ apt-get source flashplugin-nonfree ; $ sudo su and root#
rm /var/cache/flashplugin-nonfree/* ; cp ~/somestuff /var/cache
/flashplugin-nonfree
