Hmmm..that is odd.  On 30 or so times running it on my alphapca56, it
still yields 'alpha'.  I'll see if I can reproduce this here through a few
other methods...

For confirmation, this is the same dpkg from master, correct?  Also, slink
or potato?

Yeah, that definitely is not good.  Inconsistency is not a good thing :-(
