[severity set to grave]

Why this was set to grave? 'apt-get install -f' runs fine after getting
the mentioned error message. There was only a file moved from one to
another package, but the package, which now contains the file was
unpacked/replaced first, which must result in an error. How do you want
to avoid such a "problem"? AFAIK there is no possibility to control the
order in which packages are unpacked/replaced. The usage of pre-depends
is not useful for this kind of issue, which is at least not a real-bug
of the affected packages. Please correct me, if I am wrong.

Regards, Daniel
