Bug Description

When installing 1.3.99-1-1 on Ubuntu 15.10 (AMD64), I get the following error while the package configures itself:

Use --help for program usage information.
Press Return to continue.

I haven't investigated further, but presumably someone was expecting shell-expansion on that arg.

My /bin/sh is dash.
