Bug#507380: Workaround

Well, if anyone else has this problem trying to install KDE 4.1 from
experimental, I finally figure out an (ugly) workaround:

$su root
#mv /var/lib/dpkg/info/systemsettings.list
#apt-get install kdebase-workspace-data
#mv /var/lib/dpkg/info/systemsettings.list.renamed

When the apt-get thinks that there are no files in the systemsettings
package (it will output a warning about this), it succeeds in
installing the kde-workspace-data package. After you rename
systemsettings.list back, you can run aptutude and continue install of
all other packages that are in the aptitude queue. In my case install
completed normally, without any errors. I have not yet tried to reboot
into the KDE though.

Thank you,
