dpkg crashing and stopping


dpkg is no longer working anymore :-(

# dpkg --configure util-linux
Setting up util-linux (2.9g-1) ...
install-info: failed to lock dir for editing! File exists
try deleting /usr/info/dir.lock ?
dpkg: error processing util-linux (--configure):
 subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 17
Errors were encountered while processing:

So after I rm /usr/info/dir.lock , dpkg just hangs when it is setting up
packages. It stops completely.
AND 'install-info' starts eating up all available memory... going into swap
and everything.

So either way dpkg doesn't work :-(

Could you please help?

Thanks a lot.
