gdebi crashes when I try to install the package: liferea-data_1.7.4-2~llfsyncfix1+sikon8_all.deb from

This happens on a fully up-to-date Lucid x64 installation. Even if there's something wrong with the package, it would be nice if gdebi would give some useful output instead of crashing. Here's the trace:

Let me know if there's any more information that I can provide.
