I was trying to install nagios-common 2:1.3-0+pre5.  Currently installed
is apache 1.3.33-2.  apache-ssl is not installed.

It didn't really seem like a bug, but more like a rare abnormality in my
/var/cache/debconf/config.dat file.  But i'll file one.

dpkg-reconfigure nagios-common =3D> not fully installed.
dpkg-reconfigure nagios-text returns to prompt quickly and the problem=20

I was afraid of this.  After purging nagios-text, nagios-common fully
installed, so i purged that too.  Then i tried to install nagios-text
and the problem reappeared.

Setting up nagios-common (1.3-0+pre5) ...
cp: cannot stat `/etc/apache-ssl/httpd.conf': No such file or directory

I'll be reporting a bug.
