Bug#152231: dselect: dselect select horribly broken!

Package: dselect
Version: 1.10.2
Severity: grave

       2) Important Bug. Has a major effect on the usability of a package,
       without rendering it completely unusable to everyone.

More than that, since it's now unusable.

       4) Critical bug. Makes unrelated software on the system (or the whole
       system) break, or causes serious data loss, or introduces a security
       hole on systems where you install the package.

Debatable whether "the whole system" is currently broken, but obviously
there will be no security (or other) upgrades while this is broken.

That leaves:

       3) Dangerous bug. Makes the package in question unusable by anyone or
       mostly so, or causes data loss, or introduces a security hole allowing
       access to the accounts of users who use the package.

Transcript follows.

# dselect select
dselect: unable to access method script `/usr/lib/dpkg/methods/disk/setup': No such file or directory
# ls -l /usr/lib/dpkg/methods/disk/

Where did it go?

Now what?
