The problem is that lib32asound2 pre-depends on libc6-i386 (for the
/emul/ia32-linux to /lib32 transition), which depends on libc6.
lib32asound2 also depends on libasound2 which pre-depends on
multiarch-support, which depends on libc6.
lib32asound2 -> libasound2 => multiarch-support -> libc6 <- libc6-i386 <= lib32asound2
Given the /emul/ia32-linux to /lib32 transition has been finished in
squeeze, I guess we can simply drop the pre-depends on libc6-i386 on the
lib32asound2 side. I am therefore reassigning this bug.
