[ubuntu-uk] Jaunty apt segfault

Tried to install an application this morning, and kept getting segfault. 
  Same issue whether I used apt/aptitude or synaptic.  A look at the 
logs showed entries (first starting yesterday) of the form

Oct  6 09:09:27 mac-desktop kernel: [11269.364059] apt-get[11426]: 
segfault at b8e8401c ip b7f6b70c sp bfb261e0 error 4 in 

(different entries have slight variations in the hex references, apart 
from the ones in square brackets after the filename, which are always 
the same.)

The system has been restarted in the normal way a couple of times since 
yesterday.  There have been routine updates yesterday and today.

I'm out of my depth here, so I'd be grateful for any advice!
