Bug#323937: base-config: Syntax error in postinst script

Package: base-config
Version: 2.70
Severity: important

As the subject. This version's postinst script caused apt-get to halt:

#  apt-get install base-config
Setting up base-config (2.70) ...
/var/lib/dpkg/info/base-config.postinst: line 59: syntax error near
unexpected token `db_fset'
dpkg: error processing base-config (--configure):
 subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 2

The problem is the escaping of a newline caracter in line 57 of the
mentioned file. Once removed, the package installs cleanly.

This is my first bug report, and although I am pretty sure I'm doing the
right thing, be gentle on me. :)

Regards, Anders Breindahl.
