dpkg 1.7.1 errors

Since upgrading to dpkg 1.7.1, I have experienced several problems with
apt-get dist-upgrade. A few times, I had to manually install and deinstall
the downloaded packages, 'cause apt-get wasn't able to pull it off.
Today, I get this error message:
Fetched 14.5MB in 3m40s (65.8kB/s)                                             
E: Sub-process /usr/sbin/dpkg-preconfigure --apt recieved a segmentation
E: Failure running script /usr/sbin/dpkg-preconfigure --apt

After this, I just reran apt-get dist-upgrade, and after deinstalling
sawfish and sawfish-gnome and helix-sweetpill, this happened:

/home/wichert/sources/cvs/debian/x/dpkg-1.7.1/lib/dump.c:160: internal
error `unknown verrel'
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg exited unexpectedly

I don't know if this information can help some debugging, just thought I'd
share it (I don't mind these bugs that much, it's not a mission critical
box anyway)

But she can never catch him at it.
