Look at the thread following the 'Critical bug list' mail ... it was said
that we will ship 2.1 without fixing dpkg's bugs.

Yes. It experienced it multiple times. Each time I have to do this if
I forgot to unset LC_ALL:
# dplg --configure --pending
# LC_ALL=C apt-get upgrade

Otherwise we will never release ... nobody has been able to provide a patch
for this bug. I tried to sent enough info to the BTS so that somebody which 
is able to correct will do it but that has not been the case. :-(
