I'm not seeing how this can happen. It should only occur if something somewhere
does a `dpkg -iGROEB' in /var/cache/apt/archives, but debootstrap doesn't do
that, and I'd assume potato boot-floppies don't either (they just need to
unpack base.tgz and then use apt-get).

So I'm pretty sure it's not a debootstrap bug, anyway.
