file conflicts between packages


i updated woody today and found that the new xlib package wanted to
install a file over the mixviews package.

   Preparing to replace xlibs 4.1.0-5 (using .../xlibs_4.1.0-6_i386.deb) ...
   Unpacking replacement xlibs ...
   dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/xlibs_4.1.0-6_i386.deb
    trying to overwrite `/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/app-defaults', which is also in
   package mixviews
   Errors were encountered while processing:
   E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

what is the standard operating procedure for this?
