Package: artwiz-cursor
Severity: important

# dpkg -L artwiz-cursor | grep cursor.pcf

# dpkg-divert --list | grep artwiz
diversion of /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc/cursor.pcf.gz to
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc/cursor.pcf.gz-artwiz by artwiz-cursor

AFAICS the diversion (generated in preinst) affects a file which is not

# ls -l /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc/cursor.pcf.gz-artwiz
ls: /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc/cursor.pcf.gz-artwiz: No such file or directory

But because of the filename cursor.pcf.gz-artwiz the generated fonts.dir
entry in directory /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc seems to cause problems
with the font directory (see #326253 for example):

| Could not init font path element /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc/,
| removing from list!

,---- [ local workaround for the problem ]
| root@grml /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc # grep artwiz fonts.dir | grep cursor
| artwiz-cursor.pcf.gz cursor
| cursor.pcf.gz-artwiz cursor
| root@grml /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc # dpkg-divert --remove /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc/cursor.pcf.gz
| Removing `diversion of /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc/cursor.pcf.gz to /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc/cursor.pcf.gz-artwiz by artwiz-cursor'
| root@grml /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc # mkfontdir
| root@grml /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc # grep artwiz fonts.dir | grep cursor
| artwiz-cursor.pcf.gz cursor
| root@grml /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc #

I'm not sure about the severity of this problem, but as it seems to
break other software (e.g. vnc4server) I'm using 'important'.
