Bug Description

Binary package hint: manpages-posix-dev

I'm currently using Jaunty. I can confirm that both manpages-posix and manpages-posix-dev are installed:

-- 8< --
alfie@workhorse:~/tmp$ sudo apt-get install manpages-posix manpages-posix-dev
Reading package lists... Done

manpages-posix is already the newest version.
manpages-posix set to manually installed.
manpages-posix-dev is already the newest version.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
-- >8 --

However, when I try to get the sources for manpages-posix-dev, it doesn't acknowledge the "-dev" and tries to pull down the source for manpages-posix instead:

-- 8< --
alfie@workhorse:~/tmp$ sudo apt-get source manpages-posix-dev

Skipping already downloaded file 'manpages-posix_2.16-1.dsc'
Skipping already downloaded file 'manpages-posix_2.16-1.tar.gz'
Need to get 0B of source archives.
Skipping unpack of already unpacked source in manpages-posix-2.16

It used to work in Intrepid.
