I assume that apt-file finds symlinks too because at a first glance I see my
migrate package in the list. The package contains a symlink to the system

 ~> ls -la /usr/share/doc/python-migrate/html/_static/jquery.js
 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 46 Mai 17  2012
 /usr/share/doc/python-migrate/html/_static/jquery.js ->

 ~> ls -la /usr/share/javascript/sphinxdoc/1.0/jquery.js
 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 22 Mai 24  2012
 /usr/share/javascript/sphinxdoc/1.0/jquery.js -> ../../jquery/jquery.js

So IMHO before a mass filing the list should be cleaned from such false
