It looks (to me) like a corrupt pkgcache.bin file is being created when
apt is first setup during the install [1]. So, here is a wild, probably
not very well thought out idea. Since this problem has only started
occurring recently, has something changed in the installation sequence
that would cause apt to behave in this way, i.e. is it possible that
the installer is abusing apt in some way ?

I suspect the answer is no, but I thought that I'd ask anyway.
