I think there is some buggy Perl-code somewhere. This kind of problems
have been seen in alien and latex2html, formerly. They are both

Well, this kind of stuff can be seen after crash:

Filehandle STDIN opened only for output at
/usr/share/perl5/Debconf/FrontEnd/Dialog.pm line 139, <ERRFH> line 1.
