Ok, I checked all of the testing archive (unpacking all .deb in testing
on merkel with dpkg-deb and checking the postrm)
133 packages use dh_installtex
63 packages use both snippets in their postrm code
1 package affected: latex-cjk-japanese-wadalab

We have to rebuild that one with newer tex-common to get it right.

What should I do? Simply rebuild it with tex-common 1.11.2 and upload it
to stable? With increased version number???? I have no idea what a
"rebuild-only" upload should be, sorry.

For Danai: dvipost does not use the full dh_installtex stuff since it
does not install fonts/hyphenpatterns/formats.

Best wishes
