1685: dpkg-split command line parsing.
My take on this, the options expected aren't in a compatible format,
so it can't be made GNU style. Also the man page shows that the
complained about format is expected. IMO, if it's documented as such,
then it should be acceptible. GNU is not the endall argument format.

dselect doesn't seem to do this anymore
10263: segfaults on upgrade
Very old bug concerning libc5->libc6 upgrades. I don't think we have any
way to really reproduce it, plus the reports show that the cause was
possibly found from some dependencies, but the original poster never
4074: conffile's left behind
Not a current problem with dpkg it seems
1037: dselect help screen
Ian said he would fix this in the report when he released the C version of
dpkg, that seems to have occured (bug report is vague on what the actual bug
is, and attempts at clarifying have failed).
Ben....more to come
