I guess you're using squeeze or sid release. Yes, something is causing
apt and many other programs to get alignment traps.
The bug is actually in glibc bugs.debian.org/548842
If you'd like to help debug this, you can
echo 5 > /proc/cpu/alignment
and run apt-get under gdb - it will be killed with a Bus Error at the bad code.
