Bug#404207: more information

severity 404207 normal

I've been pondering why this might have happened for me, and I think I 
realise what's gone on. I've probably done the rmdir and ls stuff myself 
to fix bug #402716 prior to package upgrade (as per the workaround 
posted in http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=402716;msg=10).
Then 4:3.5.5a.dfsg.1-2 assumed that it was still a dir and hence broke.

Since the breakage was relying on an assumption that would normally be 
true, this is probably not RC. So I'll downgrade.

However, if this transition has to happen from sarge -> etch, then it 
would be nice if it could cope with scenarios like this, as people are 
likely to implement such a quick workaround for an annoying bug when
