Well, no, James's message also explained this:

    [1] As I explained on IRC: sbuild installs new X library packages,
        builds package, tries to remove them, postrm hangs due to missing
        argument to grep, sbuild times out and kills the dpkg process,
        dpkg gets confused and thinks the library package it was in the
        process of removing is still "installed but with no files"... next
        package that tries to use that library fails (often in bizarre
        ways) because the library's not actually there.

The fix would appear to be uploading 4.3.0-3, which fixes the breakage
in the deregister_x_lib_dir_with_ld_so() shell function.

See the forthcoming package changelog[1][2] or the SVN commit log[3][4]
