Bug#383267: postinst incorrectly concatenating apache/server-name with value

Package: apache
Version: 1.3.34-3
Followup-For: Bug #383267

I did a "set -x" on /var/lib/dpkg/info/apache.postinst 

After doing the db_conf section, I noticed this:
>+ db_set apache/server-name apu.exley.net
>+ _db_cmd 'SET apache/server-name' apu.exley.net
>+ printf '%s\n' 'SET apache/server-nameapu.exley.net'
>+ IFS='
>+ read -r _db_internal_line
>+ RET='10 apache/server-nameapu.exley.net doesn'\''t exist'
>+ case ${_db_internal_line%%[   ]*} in
>+ return 10
>dpkg: error processing apache (--configure):
> subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 10
> Errors were encountered while processing:
>   apache

...Looks to me like there's a missing space between var and value,
although I'm not sure

This bug also applies to apache-ssl which is failing with the same
problem (I don't know how to "link" the bug to two packages, my

further checking shows the problem is in
/usr/share/apache/postinst.common, lines 163-184. The bug is manifested
by the call to db_set on line 186, but I think it's introduced in the
awk call in line 164. Actually, I'm not sure that the problem isn't in
_db_cmd itself
