Re: Error while loading 50... due to debian-pkg-add-load-path-item?

Sounds like you're running into cedet-common bug #270388:
cedet-autogen.el insists on sticking a nil in load-path, breaking
debian-pkg-load-path-item.  Arguably, the real bug is that d-p-l-p-i
breaks, since Emacs itself permits nil (as a stand-in for the default
directory).  However, given that few things actually need that
feature, and that cedet itself does not actually seem to be among them
(as determined empirically by commenting out the offending line), it's
probably reasonable to leave emacsen-common as is and get cedet to
accommodate it (not a terribly difficult task, so I have no idea why
the maintainers have been sitting on it for months).  Incidentally,
declaring a pre-dependency on emacs21 is definitely *not* the proper
