Bug#425799: libc6-i386 tries to overwrite /lib32 symlink made by ncurses

Package: libc6-i386
Version: 2.5-9
Severity: serious

Preparing to replace libc6-i386 2.5-8 (using .../libc6-i386_2.5-9_amd64.deb)
Unpacking replacement libc6-i386 ...
dpkg: error processing
/var/cache/apt/archives/libc6-i386_2.5-9_amd64.deb (--unpack):
 trying to overwrite `/lib32', which is also in package lib32ncurses5

The problem here is that lib32ncurses5 5.6-1 is still installed, and
it provides the same symlink... If I let this install fail, and dpkg -i
lib32ncurses5 5.6-3, which removes the symlink, then try this again, it
all works.
