Oh, indeed, I missed that. Hm.

Yeah, there's some piece missing here. I've never entirely understood how
this stuff works. I do know that set -x never works with any shell script
that uses debconf (in other words, this is not specific to OpenAFS and has
been an issue for a long time), so there's something that debconf is doing
that prevents it from working, but I don't know exactly what.
