Justification: There are 2 packages whose upgrade will probably confuse apt-listbugs; just apt-cache dumpavail |grep -E '.(Package|Version):'
dist-upgrading today brought me this fine message from dpkg:
version a has bad syntax: version string has embedded spaces
It turns out that apt-listbugs is sending the long description of "wv"
to dpkg --compare-versions:
[pid 6294] execve("/usr/bin/dpkg", ["/usr/bin/dpkg", "--compare-versions", "Out puts the version of the Word "..., "lt", "1.0.2-0.1"], [/* 28 vars */]) = 0
The problem is that it uses /Version:/ instead of /^Version:/ (and the
same with Package:).
