[Pkg-roundcube-maintainers] Bug#655594: roundcube: preseeding not respected

Package: roundcube
Version: 0.7-3


if debconf frontend is set to noninteractive and priority to critical, 
and preseeding roundcube language e.g. like this *before* the package is 

   # echo roundcube-core roundcube/language select de_CH | 

then the preseeding is not respected and the language default is used 

without having looked at it yet, this seems to be a problem in postinst 
or config where the language is unconditionally set to the default first.

when preseeding it again after the package was installed, and then 
running a dpkg-reconfigure, everything works as expected.

obviously, this is kind of unfortunate as it makes setting up servers 
noninteractively through preseeding impossible. please let me know if 
you need any more information.
