I tried to unpack a source archive and due to an unrelated bug in dpkg-source
it failed. Now that I've worked around the dpkg-source bug how to I recover? If
I ask apt to install the package it thinks it's already unpacked. Do I have to
delete the directory and redownload it to get apt to do anything here?
dpkg-source: failure: patch gave error exit status 1
Unpack command 'dpkg-source -x ctwm_3.5-10.dsc' failed.
