Packages that install something over existing symlinks in lenny2squeeze, sorted by reverse dependency count.

Installing anything over a symlink opens a can of worms - this causes problems on upgrades while switching between directory and symlink or if the symlink is ever changed.
Piuparts looks at all $pathname known to dpkg and checks for

$(dirname $pathname) != $(readlink $(dirname $pathname))

The commandline to find these logs is:

COMMAND='grep -E "silently overwrites files via directory symlinks|installs objects over existing directory symlinks|dirname part contains a symlink"'

Please file bugs!
