Bug#46716: dpkg: fails to install inews, ./ error?

Package: dpkg
Severity: normal

Unpacking inewsinn (from .../inewsinn_1.7.2-11_i386.deb) ...
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/inewsinn_1.7.2-11_i386.deb
 unable to create ./usr/bin/inews': No such file or directory
Errors were encountered while processing:

The package contains:

drwxr-xr-x root/root         0 1999-09-06 12:40:22 ./usr/bin/
-rwxr-sr-x root/news     37252 1999-09-06 12:40:22 ./usr/bin/inews

Which looks fine to me. Has the change in tar somehow broken dpkg?
