I ran the postinst by hand later. No errors, no problems. So hopefully
it was some kind of interaction with a bug in dpkg that causes the
syntax error, unexpected EOF.
After noticing the effect deity and deity-gtk was causing, see my other
post this thread, I removed them and the bug in dpkg is gone for now...
I can use it to install/uninstall, just not those two packages.
