Sorry for the nonsense.  What I was fumbling to say was that it had
been many months since this last came up with nothing changed but
still you were asking "Is this a bug in apt?".  It seemed more like a
time to act, for example by filing a bug against apt or dpkg, or at

done; with the help of your reminder, finally something was done on
the dpkg side (still pending upload --- see Bug#526774).

I would be interested in the detailed message.  Not unpacking the new
version of e2fslibs while the old version of e2fsprogs is installed
would make an upgrade path impossible: do you unpack the new e2fsprogs
first or e2fslibs?  Removing e2fsprogs during upgrade is similarly a

Hope that helps,
