Bug#157762: dpkg crash (segfault) with zinf packages

Package: dpkg
Version: 1.10.4
Severity: important


I finished a first version of my ZINF packages (ZINF is not FreeA*p).

They seem to reproducibly cause a dpkg segfault on my machine when
doing the following:

~# apt-get install freeamp freeamp-extras libfreeamp-esound
~# dpkg -i --auto-deconfigure zinf_2.2.0-1_i386.deb zinf-extras_2.2.0-1_i386.deb zinf-plugin-esound_2.2.0-1_i386.deb

On my machine this dpkg crashes like this:

Selecting previously deselected package zinf.
dpkg: considering removing freeamp in favour of zinf ...
dpkg: yes, will remove freeamp in favour of zinf.
(Reading database ... 101551 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking zinf (from zinf_2.2.0-1_i386.deb) ...
De-configuring freeamp-extras, so that we can remove freeamp ...
De-configuring libfreeamp-esound, so that we can remove freeamp ...
Segmentation fault
