I can see that it's hard to noclobber-proof all scripts, but the problem is that running a simple sudo appears to pass the noclobber setting in my shell to the resulting command (synaptic in this case). It is kind of odd, but this is what happens in my case. I haven't touched root settings, and as I said running in a fresh root login works fine (noclobber is not set). Using the -i option to sudo should help, but it's not standard.
