I had the same bug and even wasted time tracing it down to
/usr/lib/dpkg/methods/disk/setup placing a ':' where it shouldn't.
Waste of time because the dpkg on ftp.debian.org, dpkg-1.0.15.tar.gz,
fixes the problem. I refer to the source package because the ftp site
is still being pulled off of backup; the binary package isn't there
Kudos to the ftp maintainer for a much cleaner organization, btw.
