[Debconf-devel] Bug#738956: debconf: Specifying `Frontend` in `debconf.conf` fails

Package: debconf
Version: 1.5.49
Severity: normal

Dear Debian folks,

from the manual page of `debconf.conf` (`man 5 debconf.conf`).

       Additional fields that can be used include:

                     The frontend Debconf should use, overriding any frontend set in the debconf database.

After `echo "Frontend: Teletype" >> /etc/debconf.conf` running any DPKG
related thinks an error is thrown.

If I am doing anything wrong, it would be great if an example could be
added to the manual page.
