Package: htdig
Version: 1:3.1.6-11
Severity: normal

Running the AMD64 arch of htdig turns existing
databases into mulch, generating errors like:


Besides corrupting databases when writing to them,
htsearch can't successfully read a i386 generated
database. Fortunately, the i386 arch htdig can run 
on Debian AMD64 with some involved cajoling, and 
it works ok.

I don't think this one is going to get fixed upstream,
so just be warned.
