adduser issues with 5.0

Ahhh more little things..  This is minor though.

adduser works just fine.  Only problem is, I cannot get the
/etc/adduser.message to be sent via the adduser.conf file. I have tried

both msgfile=/etc/adduser.message

old (worked with 4.8)
send_message = "/etc/adduser.message"

oh and
of course.

Now if you run adduser -m /etc/adduser.message
it works, and sends the email.  With 4.8 I didnt need to use the -m
option.  So... any idea's?  I'm not into editing Bourne shell scripts if I
dont have to.  The conf files are diff from 4.8 to 5.0 so who knows what
else got changed..

Any help is appreciated!
