Indeed. I have uploaded a new version to Debian which closes this bug. Maybe I will request a backport from Lucid+1 to Lucid.

This really needs to be fixed in Lucid as it doesn't work when installing the standard versions of git-core and guilt. Breakage from the outset..... only way to get guilt is to compile it from source.
