Package: dpkg

 After entering menu choice 2 (aka Select) in dselect and leaving this
 point again (even without actually changing anything, ie. by pressing
 'x') the permissions of both /var/lib/dpkg/{status,available} are
 changed according to the umask setting of root (because I call dselect
 as root).
 This is a Bad Thing, because when you use umask 077 (as I do) these
 files are not readable by any ordinary user. So you cannot execute
 dpkg --status or dpkg --list without beeing root!
