Bug Description

Binary package hint: python-central

On a dapper -> hardy upgrade test with huge amounts of packages installed, python-central gives the following error:

Setting up python-central (0.6.0ubuntu2) ...^M
pycentral: pycentral pkginstall: not overwriting local files^M
pycentral pkginstall: not overwriting local files^M
dpkg: error processing python-central (--configure):^M
 subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1^M

This system never had local files, its a stock dapper install with additional packages from main.

In a dapper pbuilder chroot with just python-pyrex installed, the upgrade gives me the following error:

I will upload a new python-pyrex with the missing replaces, but I'm not sure if that will fix the python-central issues were it reports "not overwriting local files".

This should be fixed now in the current python-pyrex
