Abologies to Yann since I cc'ed 2 bugs with this, but I think it should be in 
the discussion of both.

While this bug *is* resolved in 1999.08.29-9 for me the prerm script in 
1999.08.29-8 (the one that actually broke on my machine) fails, so the new one 
does not get installed. In my case, the solution was to obtain the actual deb 
(should be in /var/cache/apt/archives/console-data_1999.08.29-9_all.deb if apt 
just failed) and dpkg -i --force confnew console-data_1999.08.29-9.deb. That 
made the install succeed. I don't know if there is any way to make this 
automatically use the new scripts, but it would help.
