Package: apt
Version: 0.7.14+b1
Severity: important

*** Please type your report below this line ***


I'm using the German locale de_DE@euro.

Since about yesterday, apt / aptitude fail for me with the following 

E: Toll, Sie haben die Anzahl an Beschreibungen überschritten, die APT 
handhaben kann.
E: Problem with MergeList
E: Die Paketliste oder die Statusdatei konnte nicht geparst oder geöffnet 

I'm not the only one who recently seems to be affected by this problem:

However, the suggested workaround - deleting the *Translation* files in 
/var/lib/apt/ - didn't
work for me.

Removing some Debian suits from sources.list - eg. only keeping unstable 
and deleting stable and
testing - seems to help.

Changing the locale to "C" also seems to help. (!)

Are there any "real" solutions to this problem, which renders apt-get / 
aptitude unusuable without
manual intervention. (I found the locale-dependency of this problem by 
pure trial-and-error...)
