If by "the default way" you mean "without giving an -s argument", then
it's always been broken.  It might be broken worse than usual now; I am
not sure.  Anyway, I have just proposed, over in tech-install, that it
should be an error to run etcupdate or postinstall without giving a "-s"
argument.  Please comment in that thread rather than here.
