Me too.  The actual problem seems to have been causing by a behavior of
ldconfig that we almost never see because we tend to ship library
packages with lib$SONAME.so.$SOVERSION symbolic links already in the
package payload.

See xrender 0.8.3-2, which is in queue/accepted as of this writing.

So, let's see, I've been violated by ldconfig, libtool, and dpkg-divert
all within the past 2 days.  I feel like Tera Patrick.
