Bug#62263: apt-get gives Perl error: Undefined values detected at confmodule startup

Package: apt
Version: 0.3.18

When trying to apt-get mmv, rsync, apt-move and apt-proxy, apt-get
output the error below. The packages however seem to have been installed
ok. I tried to reproduce the error (by doing a dpkg --purge on the
packages, and reinstalling them), but no succes: the error did not
occur again. A bit strange, all with all.
