I suppose this is the default value since I did not need to use it.

I use debconf-set-selections bla, but I think this is unimportant.

I have exactly the same  output (including mysql errors, ignored because
of roundcube/install-error value).

This  is   really  odd.   Does  the  correct   values  are   present  in
/etc/dbconfig-common/roundcube.conf?  What kind of  fresh sid  system do
you use? I made my own tests on a freshly updated pbuilder.

Fine for me.
