I also ran into this bug. It happened to me as soon as I rebooted after an interrupted release upgrade from Oneiric to Precise (which made me switch to a terminal and finish the upgrade manually).

 (X crash due to Debian bug #624500 affecting the monkeysphere-validation-agent package, breaking the dist-upgrade when responding 'yes' to a monkeysphere-validation-agent prompt asking whether I wanted to restart this daemon since it had detected changes to some of its dependencies)
