I haven't read the bug report, but when a newer package replaces an
older one, you need to have add a
Conflicts: <old version>
Replaces: <old version>
To the new package. I think apt-get, dselect and others have been set up
in this manner.

It is not correct to put Conflicts in the 2.4 package because it is 2.5
that *caused* the conflict. It came on the scene AFTER 2.4, right?
