Bug#404207: kdebase-data will not unpack (bails when an rmdir fails)

Package: kdebase-data
Version: 4:3.5.5a.dfsg.1-2
Severity: grave
Justification: makes the package in question unusable

This version of the package (in etch) will not install:

    Preparing to replace kdebase-data 4:3.5.5a.dfsg.1-1 (using
    .../kdebase-data_4%3a3.5.5a.dfsg.1-2_all.deb) ...
    rmdir: /etc/xdg/menus/kde-applications-merged: Not a directory
    dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/kdebase-data_4%3a3.5.5a.dfsg.1-2_all.deb (--unpack):
     subprocess pre-installation script returned error exit
     status 1

However, 4:3.5.5a.dfsg.1-4 (in sid) does unpack.

The thing in question is a symlink:

    $ ls -ld /etc/xdg/menus/kde-applications-merged
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 34 2006-11-26 21:54 /etc/xdg/menus/kde-applications-merged -> /etc/xdg/menus/applications-merged
