Debconf goes into infinite loop and starts consuming all the cpu when
selecting the "show a side-by-side difference between the versions"
option from the locally modified configuration files dialog. This
seems to happen with all frontends. Here's an example session with the
readline frontend, interrupted by CTRL-C:
Preparing to replace bash-completion 20060301-4 (using
Unpacking replacement bash-completion ...
Setting up bash-completion (20060301-4) ...
Modified configuration file
A new version of configuration file /etc/bash_completion is available,
version installed currently has been locally modified.
1. install the package maintainer's version
2. keep the local version currently installed
3. show the differences between the versions
4. show a side-by-side difference between the versions
5. start a new shell to examine the situation
