Bug#40977: dpkg fails to overwite and returns error



Package: dpkg
Version: 1.4.1.3

This bug is important as it poentially breaks insyallation
of every package that tries to overite something...
Here are two examples on Intel and PPC... It started to 
occur yesterday. I'm not sure the problem is in dpkg
as paste seems to fail...
