Same for me. It is more or less reproducible, happens (almost) each
time I upgrade or install large packages like e.g. tetex-doc or
tetex-extra. Most of the times /var/lib/dpkg/available is corrupted
after that and has to be re-created. 

Fortunately e2fsck from Debian GNU/Linux has been able to fix most
errors. This has been happening over and over again since the upgrade
to hurd and libc 0.3, I believe.

Is there anything one can do to help debugging this?
