Bug#970878: ghostscript breaks doc-rfc autopkgtest: segmentation fault

Source: ghostscript, doc-rfc
Control: found -1 ghostscript/9.53.1~dfsg-2
Control: found -1 doc-rfc/20191026-1

Dear maintainer(s),

With a recent upload of ghostscript the autopkgtest of doc-rfc fails in
testing when that autopkgtest is run with the binary packages of
ghostscript from unstable. It passes when run with only packages from
testing. In tabular form:

                       pass            fail
ghostscript            from testing    9.53.1~dfsg-2
doc-rfc                from testing    20191026-1
versioned deps [0]     from testing    from unstable
all others             from testing    from testing

I copied some of the output at the bottom of this report.

Currently this regression is blocking the migration of ghostscript to
testing [1]. Due to the nature of this issue, I filed this bug report
against both packages. Can you please investigate the situation and
reassign the bug to the right package?

More information about this bug and the reason for filing it can be found on


[0] You can see what packages were added from the second line of the log
file quoted below. The migration software adds source package from
unstable to the list if they are needed to install packages from
ghostscript/9.53.1~dfsg-2. I.e. due to versioned dependencies or
