Bug#230855: linux-wlan-ng: shared scripts loops forever because of shared.dpkg-old

Package: linux-wlan-ng
Version: 0.2.0-12
Severity: normal

On my machine, I installed linux-wlang-ng more than once, therefore the
file /etc/wlan/shared.dpkg-old was created, which is an exact copy of
Consequently, when the following loop is executed:

    for i in /etc/wlan/shared.* ; do
	. $1
also /etc/wlan.shared.dpkg-old get executed, which in turns execute itself, and so on ...

Maybe testing for executability of the script would avoid the problem, since 
shared.dpkg-old has the executable bit not set.
