Sorry, looking back over Raul's message, I'm not sure I was seeing the
same thing he was. My problem was:
I had cdtool-1.0-3 installed. I did a 'dpkg --install cdtool-1.0-4'.
Tried to run one of the cdtool programs --- it wasn't there.
Reinstalled. Still wasn't there. Grabbed a copy of -3 and installed
that. _Still_ wasn't there. I started comparing against the file list
--- the /usr/doc/copyright/cdtool file was there. I did a 'dpkg --purge
cdtool'. Then ran the installation again. Everything worked.
I've not tried to reproduce it.
