Bug or not? dpkg-reconfigure -au
 
Hi when attaching the pid of dpkg-reconfigure to root# gdb 2>&1 | tee gdb-dpkg-reconfigure.txt

and

handle SIG33 ...
set pag...
attach <PID> -au
continue

I get this:

Program received signal SIGPIPE, Broken pipe.

0xb7f0d430 in __kernel_vsyscall ()
(gdb) continue
Continuing.

Program received signal SIGPIPE, Broken pipe.
0xb7f0d430 in __kernel_vsyscall ()
(gdb) continue
Continuing.

0xb7f0d430 in __kernel_vsyscall ()
(gdb) continue
Continuing.

I can restart all of these interuptions with up-arrow and enter (continue)

Is this a bug in dpkg-reconfigure?

I presume it is, because it is not like the true interuptions triggered by for instance scanlogd:


** Starting Samba daemons******************************************* **** [ OK ]
saned disabled; edit /etc/default/saned
--------- IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR XINETD USERS ----------
The following line will be added to your /etc/inetd.conf file:


#<off># sane-port stream tcp nowait saned:saned /usr/sbin/saned saned

If you are indeed using xinetd, you will have to convert the
above into /etc/xinetd.conf format, and add it manually. See
/usr/share/doc/xinetd/README.Debian for more information.

Suggested entry (automatically converted using itox):

Is there a way to run dpkg-reconfigure verbosely, so I can see which packages trigger this (and ultimately get a backtrace)? Or shoud I attach pidof gdb to another gdb? Should I file a bug or run 'root# dpkg-reconfigure > /home/me/Desktop/some-file'?


Cheers,

Thomas
