I've confirmed now on Christian Grothoff's box that this was fixed in
dpkg 1.17.22, with commit 9a9ba74915876449b1fe20d4b76ab759f7d09d86
for #768852.

(Thanks Christian for the access, it was a very helpful and quick way
to reproduce this, instead of having to download GiBs of data over the
net, and wait hours for the thing to install and upgrade. I've only
fixed the immediate apt issue and gotten dpkg 1.17.22 installed, w/o
doing the full dist-upgrade, I've cleaned after myself, and you can
remove my access now, thanks again!)
