WARNING: APT removes bash on slink upgrade

Package: bash
Version: 2.02.1-1.5

Hi all,

The current bash/libreadline dependencies in potato are formed in an
conflicts/pre-depends loop that causes APT to remove bash, install
libreadlineg2 and then try to reinstall bash (which fails because bash
needs bash to install [remove actually]..) Newer APTs were supposed to
warn about this situation, but even that seems broken - so be carefull!

This is due to a recent bash NMU which now pre-depends on the potato
libreadlineg2 which conflicts with the slink bash.

Bash -MUST- be re-uploaded with the proper changes made so that it can
exist with the slink libreadlineg2 ASAP.
