Upgraded yesterday myself, and I can confirm that unstable packages fix
the problem.

Add util-linux-locales/unstable to that. Both packages go together, so
you need both out of unstable.

If yo ran into the problem while dist-upgrading, that failed on the
error, so you have one package half-installed, and the rest of the
dist-upgrade pending.

Just run

	apt-get install util-linux/unstable util-linux-locales/unstable

and continue with apt-get dist-upgrade afterwards.
