FWD: [Debconf-devel] Bug#422130: cant login into gnome-2.18 in Debian Sid+experimental error in debconf :/etc/bash_completion.d/debconf: line 10: `_debconf-show': not a valid identifier

Does someone know why gdm has started doing this with the new gnome?
I've gotten two bugs about this today, and never any previously and
AFAIK the debconf completion is ok, and is not unlike other completions
(apt-file for example) that would presumably also cause this.

Hello,
I uses debian experimental+ Sid apt-pinned.with today's upgrade I
ended up with cant login into my GNOME Desktop.the error is showing on
the login process as
:~$cat .xsession-errors
/etc/gdm/PreSession/Default: Registering your session with wtmp and utmp
/etc/gdm/PreSession/Default: running: /usr/bin/sessreg -a -w
/var/log/wtmp -u /var/run/utmp -x "/var/lib/gdm/:0.Xservers" -h "" -l
":0" "root"
/etc/gdm/Xsession: Beginning session setup...
/etc/bash_completion.d/debconf: line 10: `_debconf-show': not a valid
identifier
While upto gdm screen everything seems alright.
the line contains:
/etc/bash_completion.d/debconf: line 10: `_debconf-show': not a valid
identifier
I checked that file and its contents are below:
~# cat /etc/bash_completion.d/debconf
have debconf-show &&
_debconf-show()
{
       local cur

       COMPREPLY=()
       cur=${COMP_WORDS[COMP_CWORD]}
       COMPREPLY=($( compgen -W '--listowners --listdbs --db=' -- $cur ) \
                       $( apt-cache pkgnames -- $cur ) )
}
complete -F _debconf-show debconf-show
the files source was from the package "debconf".
I logged into this session with gnome by running gnome-session along
with startx :(
Hope this bug get fixed upstream.
                                                                        truely,
                                                              Prakash

 Could be the mistake I made in 2.18.1-1 fixed in -2; please open a bug
 otherwise.
