Package: ssl-cert
Version: 1.0.15
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

The network installation of Lenny 64-bit hangs when configuring
ssl-cert. In addition, if you install Etch 64-bit and then try to
upgrade to Lenny the upgrading process also hangs while configuring
ssl-cert. This happens with different mirrors.

It is waiting for entropy. It helps if you switch to another virtual
console and type something, or if the computer sees network traffic.
If there is no network attached and you don't touch the keyboard, the
wait can be very long.

Are you sure? 1.0.16 is not yet in testing. I thought the installer
images were only for testing.
