Of course no software is bug-free. My version of lintian (1.23.8) doesn't give any error while checking lintian_1.23.16_all.deb, so if you have an up-to-date version of lintian it's very likely the bug is in lintian itself. Have you tried checking the package with linda instead? Cheers. -- KiyuKo <eof AT kiyuko DOT org> "Like Russian Rulette with six bullets loaded"
