I have a workaround.

I was hit by the same or a similar bug.  The symptom was the same
assertion failure.  There were two unconfigured packages:
  libggi2  (990212-1)
  libggi-target-vcsa (990212-1)
If I did
  dpkg --configure --pending
I got the assertion failure.  These two packages interdepend, so I
could't simply configure one first and then another.

I was, however, able to configure libggi-target-vcsa with --force-depends,
configuring libggi2 on a separate run.  This is my workaround.
