Bug#427859: lmodern fails to configure on upgrade, dpkg error

Package: lmodern
Version: 1.010x-3
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

I upgraded a whole flotilla of packages today. I didn't mean upgrade an
TeX packages as I'm waiting on TeXLive to stabalize, but apparently aptitude
decided to upgrade lmodern (or maybe I was just careless). At any rate, even
though this version is in lenny, the install died a horrible flaming death: 

E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
A package failed to install.  Trying to recover:
Setting up lmodern (1.010x-3) ...
Running mktexlsr. This may take some time... done.

updmap-sys failed. Output has been stored in
Please include this file if you report a bug.

Sometimes, not accepting conffile updates in /etc/texmf/updmap.d
causes updmap-sys to fail.  Please check for files with extension
.dpkg-dist or .ucf-dist in this directory
