Package: newsclipper
Version: 1.28-1
Severity: normal

WTF? Why would a package be attempting to remove anything under the
sacrosanct /usr/local?

Preparing to replace newsclipper 1.17-3 (using .../newsclipper_1.28-1_all.deb) ...
rmdir: `/usr/local/lib/newsclipper': Directory not empty
Unpacking replacement newsclipper ...
keyboard: Timeout - AT keyboard not present?
Setting up newsclipper (1.28-1) ...
Installing new version of config file /etc/NewsClipper.cfg ...

Whatever it did, there's only a directory tree there now, so the damage
appears to have been done.
