Bug#193370: md5sum doesn't handle large files

Package: dpkg

Apparently, the md5sum packaged with dpkg doesn't react well to large
files (I'm guessing > 2 gigs). It just blurts out the following after
processing for a while:

$ md5sum largefile
largefile: Success

I can get the md5sum of the same file with cat largefile | md5sum, but
that shouldn't really be necessary.
