Hm, AFAIK noninteractive only affects debconf, but not dpkg's conffile
questions.  At least that's what I think I've learned, and what I just
tested (logged into a quite old etch pbuilder chroot, changed
/etc/login.defs and installed the new version: Although DEBIAN_FRONTEND
is noninteractive, it asked the question).

So I don't have a clue here.
