Bug#509291: Lenovo SL500, Debian lenny installation report

Quoting Joey Hess (joeyh@debian.org):

From what I read in scripts, laptop-detect is "simply" installed in
pre-pkgsel.d, with "apt-install laptop-detect". From my understanding,
if that fails, the user will be notified.....so, the only explanation
I see is that laptop-detect postinst exited normally even though the
package wasn't installed properly. Is this the correct interpretation?
