reopen #770265 This bug is still present in Debian 9.4 which is the official stable release of Debian, the one that people are supposed to use.
This despite the bug being known 4 years before the Debian 9.4 release! This despite the bug breaking package management! This despite a fix being known and implemented! So until this bug is fixed in the Debian release everyone uses I don't think it should be closed. -- Francois Gouget <fgou...@free.fr> http://fgouget.free.fr/ In theory, theory and practice are the same, but in practice they're different.
