Bug#35362: dpkg: dpkg segfaults with LANG=de_DE / LC_ALL=de during apt-get dist-upgrade
dpkg keeps segfaulting, leaving half-installed _extremely_ broken packages
lying around, when using the German message files. This happened repeatedly
and a couple other times (all from slink) with other packages I don't
remember any more. When unSETting LC_ALL and LANG, dpkg works fine.
This made me quite nervous because I was updateing a production machine.
Thank $DEITY nothing happened =;()
