coreutils/debianutils dependency cycle?

This is somewhat unexpected, given that both packages are already
installed and configured. Does anyone know what's up?

lapse:~# apt-get install --reinstall {core,debian}utils
Reading package lists... Done

Need to get 0B/3178kB of archives.
After unpacking 0B of additional disk space will be used.
Do you want to continue [Y/n]? 
E: Couldn't configure pre-depend coreutils for debianutils, probably a dependency cycle.

Please do not send copies of list mail to me; I read the list!
