Bug Description

Binary package hint: flashplugin-nonfree

It appears 32bit libpcre.so.3 needs to be packaged for amd64 as well for flashplugin-nonfree usage...

Setting up flashplugin-nonfree (9.0.115.0ubuntu2) ...
Installing from local file /var/cache/flashplugin-nonfree/install_flash_player_9_linux.tar.gz
Flash Plugin installed.
/usr/lib/nspluginwrapper/i386/linux/npviewer.bin: error while loading shared libraries: libpcre.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Re-installing ia32-libs_2.1ubuntu3_amd64.deb will work around this issue as it removes the dependancy on /usr/lib32/libpcre.so.3
This is because ia32-libs_2.2 made libpcre.so.3 a dependancy for various gtk/glib related libraries

Hi,
that sounds strange, but I couldn't solve my problem just simply
reinstalling ia32-libs
