* unusable: you reported against tex-common, and the building of a format
  jadetex was brokeen. Uninstalling jadetex would have fixed it.
  Thus *not* unusalbe *by*most*or*all*users.
* dataloss: no

YOu reported against tex-common. And even against jadetex I cannot
reproduce this behaviour, not even in a minimal chroot
with only those packages I mentioned installed ...

That is interesting ... if it was installed, then before running
the triggers of tex-common, mktexlsr is run. So it should find
ulem.sty, because it *is* in texlive-generic-recommended.

Can you reproduce this behaviour? Is it still happening?
I.e., does
	dpkg --configure -a
break down? If yes, can you tell me the output of
	kpsewhich ulem.sty
	kpsewhich texmf.cnf
and what files you are havin gin /etc/texmf?
