Package: lib32gcc1
Version: 1:4.4.4-11
Severity: grave
Tags: sid
Justification: causes non-serious data loss

Hi, some recent packaging changes have resurrected an ancient preinst script
that handles^Wmesses with some things related to /usr/lib32 and
/emul/ia32-linux/usr/lib. As a result /usr/lib32 becomes a symbolic link
to /emul/ia32-linux/usr/lib and previous content of /usr/lib32 is lost

Fortunately this only happend to me in a pbuilder environment breaking
some build, not a real system.

The problem seems to happen only if /emul/ia32-linux still exists - in
the pbuilder there was an ancient libssl.so.0.9.7 from 2007 left that I
never noticed before.
But it is quite likely that "grown" systems that regularily used testing
may still have /emul/ia32-linux around because some package updates
during the transition phase did not move their stuff properly, so the
/emul tree was never removed.

1:4.4.4-8 (testing) and 1:4.5.1-3 (experimental) are not affected.
