Ok, it is a different problem.
Coreutils was there, but was incomplete:
root:/var/lib/apt# dpkg -L coreutils | grep fold
It happens from time to time to some packages. When I refetch the pac-
kage, everything is fine. Even if it is a problem with my network
connection (SHOULD NOT happen - TCP should not allow mangled data to ar-
rive, no?) why aptitude/apt doesn't complain about it.
It is not a problem for me to refetch it, but what if someday it will
fsck up glibc or something important?
