sorry it this is a stupid question..

I wish to upgrade a few servers from woody to sarge, including the  
exim4 package and I want to do it automatically because I may not  
have ssh access.
The problem is when it comes to configure the exim4, exim4-base  
The installer display the question regardless of any of the frontend  
I gave to debconf.

p.ex.:  DEBCONF_FRONTEND=noninteractive \
DEBCONF_DB_FALLBACK='File{/tmp/config.dat}' apt-get install -y  exim4  
exim4-base exim4-config exim4-daemon-light

In /tmp/config.dat, I copied the informations found in then /var/ 
cache/debconf/config.dat of a freshly installed system (you will find  
the extract of this file at ther bottom of this mail).

Am I completly wrong to use debconf this way ? are there some  
information missing in my debconf database ? (some settings does not  
seems to have ca Value: fields.. is that correct ?)
I cannot get rid of this dialog and I don't understand why...

thank for any help !
best regards
