Bug#50530: apt-get crashes when installing many packages...

Package: apt
Version: 0.3.14


I just was installing a new machine. I loaded a list
of selected packages into dpkg --set-selections and
started apt-get dselect-install (about 800 packages, 1 GB).

Unfortunately, apt-get crashes every 5-15 (or so) packages
while unpacking the packages: 

Errors were encountered whie processing:
  [package path]
E: Sub-process returned an error code(1)

Sometimes even a segfault. 

At the moment I use it from a script:

  dpkg --configure --pending
  apt-get dselect-install
  goto loop
