That's no more true. i18n is enabled for stable. But it has not been
compiled into dpkg, it does use gettext from libc6 :

 dpkg ( stable; urgency=low
   * Non-maintainer upload.
   * Reverted workaround. Compiling without the options
     --with-included-gettext solves the core-dump problem.

The explanation why it does work so ? I don't know ... this bug is really
strange and probably involves a bug in gettext itself. Santiago can tell
you more about strange things with gettext. :)
