dpkg package "stuck"


My dpkg database seems to be slightly corrupted with respect to the "imgsizer" package

If I try to install it I get:

debian:/home/web# apt-get install imgsizer
Reading Package Lists... Done

E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (2)

If I try to purge it I get:

debian:/home/web# dpkg -P imgsizer
dpkg: parse error, in file `/var/lib/dpkg/status' near line 55249 package `imgsizer':

The story of how this came about is a long one ...
What to I need to do to purge "imgsizer" properly so I can re-install it ?
