I'm using here dpkg 1.9.19 and don't see this behaviour:

|[salem:~]-335> dpkg --compare-versions 2.2.14 lt 2.2.0; echo $?       
|zsh: exit 1     dpkg --compare-versions 2.2.14 lt 2.2.0
|1
|[salem:~]-335> dpkg --compare-versions 2.2.14 gt 2.2.0; echo $? 
|0

Also I couldn't find a hint in the changelogs for 1.9.19 that introduced
such a change to dpkg.
