Bug Description

Binary package hint: bzip2

Encountered during automated distribution upgrade on AMD64 from Ubuntu 7.1 to 8.04 using the generic kernel. It's only the docs, not a huge deal, unless you need to refer back to them for some reason or another.

Ultimately halted the upgrade process.

It looks like a rebuild is enough to fix this issue. I uploaded a new version that should be good now.
