This is likely either bash's fault, as another person pointed out
(upgrade to bash 2.05b-5), or some package is violating policy and
shipping /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/app-defaults.

The error message asks you to mail the debian-x list, not file a bug,
because it is often hard to tell exactly what is reponsible for these
errors.

Closing this bug.
