Package: dpkg

# dpkg-deb --version
Debian GNU/Linux `dpkg-deb' package archive backend version 0.93.77.
Copyright (C) 1994,1995 Ian Jackson.  This is free software; see theGNU General Public Licence version 2 or later for copying conditions.
There is NO warranty.  See dpkg-deb --licence for details.

"theGNU" should be "the GNU", and the output is not word wrapped.

# dpkg --audit
The following packages are only half installed, due to problems during
installation.  The installation can probably be completed by retrying it;the packages can be removed using dselect or dpkg --remove:
 fvwmR5               the fvwm window manager for X11R5

"it;the" should be "it; the", and the output is not word wrapped.

Suggestion for Ian J.:
Repeated searches through the packages list in dselect by pressing "\"
doesn't indicate when the search has finished it's cycle. I.e. you can
loop around and around without being notified that you have been there
before. This might be something to be included.
