Bug#174973: dpkg-query -W default output format is broken

Package: dpkg
Version: 1.10.9
Tags: patch

The default format string for dpkg-query -W doesn't match the type of
format string that is actually supported by the underlying library code.
Symptom is that dpkg-query -W by default outputs a tab and newline,
but no real data, for each matching package.
