Is it the same as bug #694137 ?

Yes, it looks like it is the same as bug #694137, I have that error if I now try to reinstall flashplugin-installer.

Does this bug depend on googletalkplugin? At least for me it was the culprit.

That seems likely, the only other plugins I had were googletalkplugin and skype.
