Trying to do an apt-dist upgrade, I get this error:

Unpacking replacement libxt6 ...
dpkg: error processing
/var/cache/apt/archives/libxt6_6.8.2-21_i386.deb (--unpack):
 trying to overwrite `/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/app-defaults',
which is also in package xscreensaver
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

This is holding up the installation of 100-odd other
packages. Could anyone help me get past it?

(And yes, I did file a bug on this earlier today. No word
