Bug Description

Binary package hint: synaptic

Attempting to install the package "ddclient", I chose when prompted to select the hostnames to update with ddclient from an auto-generated list. Unfortunately the list-selection program failed miserably and spat out a garbage list with either blank entries or broken HTML. I believe it failed to parse the retrieved list correctly.
