Thank you Dale,
that's exactly the problem I have mentioned in that other e-mail
It's a problem in the current *.deb
and I've now found the culprit: debian/rules has explicitly set
the directory without a trailing '/'
I have now changed that (svn rev 3916).
Dirk, could you build a new *.deb file for Dale to try?
