Package: citadel-server
Version: 7.42-1
Severity: important

Although I'm not sure about the reason why citadel is not running yet,
postist stops to continue in this case, which is not nice...

Setting up citadel-server (7.42-1) ...
applying your settings.
Setup is finished, but the Citadel server failed to start.
Go back and check your configuration.

sendcommand: started (pid=14534) running in citadel
Attaching to server...
Can't connect: Connection refused

postinst is stuck now, and I need to kill debconf
(/usr/bin/perl -w /usr/share/debconf/frontend) to kill it.
