Package: icinga-idoutils
Version: 1.6.1-1~bpo60+1
Severity: minor

Today I tried an upgrade from 1.5.1-1~bpo60+1 to 1.6.1-1~bpo60+1 of the whole icinga package.

The initial upgrade hung, specifically the process 
/usr/bin/perl -w /usr/share/debconf/frontend /var/lib/dpkg/info/icinga-idoutils.postinst configure 

Setting up icinga-idoutils (1.6.1-1~bpo60+1) ...
Installing new version of config file /etc/icinga/ido2db.cfg-sample ...
dbconfig-common: writing config to /etc/dbconfig-common/icinga-idoutils.conf
Replacing config file /etc/icinga/ido2db.cfg with new version
creating database backup in /var/cache/dbconfig-common/backups/icinga-idoutils_1.5.1-1~bpo60+1.mysql.
applying upgrade sql for 1.5.1-1~bpo60+1 -> 1.6.0-1.sql.
dbconfig-common: flushing administrative password
dpkg: error processing icinga-idoutils (--configure):
 subprocess installed post-installation script killed by signal (Killed)

(Output of dist-upgrade after killing the running perl-instance)

dpkg --configure -a was issued imidiately afterwards, but informed me, that the database was
broken, i.e. multiple field were duplicated. (forgot to copie that information)

The package was then completly purged, including any databases, but on reinstallation
the problem still persists. And the process still hangs at the same point.
(see strace attached)
