upgrade error testing powermgmt-base_1.17_i386.deb


I have Sarge installed, but today I did an dist-upgrade and powermgmt-base continues to kill the upgrade.  I have tried doing dist-upgrade -f and still errors out.  I can't remove it since it will wipe out gnome.  Anyone know a way I can make this evil package be nice to me and install, letting the rest of the 800+ packages install?

root@billybox:~# dist-upgrade -f
