    Note that a bug has been raised in Debian regarding this issue, #758140.  There is also a 
related but more general bug in Debian (#698298)  and the corresponding bug for that in Ubuntu 
(#1078817, where it was originally raised).  All of these have to do with using dbconfig-common 
in the configuration step as part of the package installation;  that package has a lot of 
problems (which is why it experimently and is disabled by default)  and as we really only need 
to set up the LedgerSMB database administrative user, I will be working on an updated LSMB 
package that does not use dbconfig-common at all.

    As noted before;  abort out of that and redo that with the configuation step disabled. (If 
necessary, run 'dpkg-reconfigure ledgersmb'.)  Then set the password manually on the 'ledgersmb' 
admin user as necessary, as noted in the README.Debian file.
