Unfortunately, not any more. I should have typescripted it but I
I was upgrading via dselect. Everything went fine through when dpkg
unpacked the new dpkg. Then it segfaulted. I tried to run install from
dselect again and it unpacked sysvinit and tried to update a conf file
but then segfaulted. I tried to run a dselect update and it segfaulted.
It's unreproducible now on this machine. I will try on a PPC machine I
haven't updated in awhile.
