Another dir.old.gz in another package having the same bug.
This bug has a nasty property: A single package with this bug may be
difficult to notice and even "almost harmless". It is two or more
packages having this bug what is really catastrophic.
Since a package has not more "right" than others to be "the single one
package having this bug", we can't do anything but treat all these bugs
with the same RC severity.
