Bug in cron postinst

YES, I know that the postinst doesn't work if you don't have any user
crontabs, feel free to stop reporting the bug -- I have enough.

You can get the installation to complete by editing /var/lib/dpkg/info/cron.postinst and removing these three lines near the end:

    for ct in * ; do
        chown $ct:crontab $ct

Then run 'dpkg --configure --pending'.

Yes, obvious in retrospect, and I'll put the brown paper bag on my head
after I upload the fix.

    The irony is that Bill Gates claims to be making a stable operating
    system and Linus Torvalds claims to be trying to take over the
    world.       -- seen on the net
