Thanks for the report. Indeed it was easy to reproduce, a bit less easy to fix even though it's a one line patch.

The problem was that when the configuration is not immediately possible, clientdata->istobe is reset to itb_installnew and in some places I use that information to decide whether I want to look at "available" or "installed" in terms of package information. But that assumption only holds true during early installation (i.e. unpack) and not during configuration.

So in the end, I might do some further refactoring to get rid of that not-so-good assumption.
