No, it is a bug in dpkg-divert that was introduced with some code that is
supposed to check write permissions to the divert locations (so it can
fail and not proceed to change the diversion registry, in the case of ro
file systems and such). I'll have it fixed for 220.127.116.11 which should be
uploaded tonight by Wichert.
