See /usr/share/debconf/confmodule. Basically, it passes in $0.
I suspect the actual problem isn't so much that, now that I've looked at
it more, but with this bit:
# Only do this once.
if [ -z "$DEBCONF_REDIR" ]; then
# Redirect standard output to standard error. This prevents common
# mistakes by making all the output of the postinst or whatever
# script is using this library not be parsed as confmodule commands.
# To actually send something to standard output, send it to fd 3.
if [ "$DEBCONF_USE_CDEBCONF" ]; then
I bet the -x output ends up still happening, but going off into some other
file descriptor where it gets ignored.
