internal error in dselect from dpkg

Hi Ian and/or Klee,

I'm a long-time Slackware user (six years, I think), and I've just started 
using Debian 2.0 because I need a distribution that is glibc2-compatible.

However my first experience has not exactly been a pleasure. It took me a long 
time to select the packages I want installed, and when I was ready doing my 
selections dselect bailed out with the following error message:

  internal error - no filename at -e line 12, <P> chunk 15.
  installations script returned error exit status 1.

Any idea what could be going wrong?

Fact is that I've only installed a base system and can't upgrade it to the 
packages I want/need. If at all possible I don't want to re-select everything 
again, 'cause it's a PITA. :-(

Thanks in advance for your help,
