Damien,

Please file a new bug report against dpkg for the issue you're seeing. There appears to be a regression in the handling of --force-depends, making it impossible to force installation of a foreign-arch package without satisfying the dependencies. That's certainly not the preferred way to install packages, but the --force options shouldn't be made to regress.
