thank you Daniel for looking into this. I'd like to start by providing a few
more details as this might help to triage this bug. The bug is related to
parsing/handling of aptitude-defaults and manifests itself when
aptitude-defaults.{zh*,..} are used.

I verified this by replacing /usr/local/share/aptitude/aptitude-defaults.zh_TW
with /usr/local/share/aptitude/aptitude-defaults which fixed the error.

I can still reproduce it even with the newest version in git and using "-O0 -g"
and I am not sure why you don't see the error. Are you running aptitude
directly from the repository with something like ./src/aptitude? I ask because
that doesn't result in the error because aptitude-defaults.zh_TW is not loaded.

I tried to bisect the issue and initially thought that it might have been
de95eb2 or bd3f0ed, but I could reproduce it with e93a341 (i.e. 0.6.5) as
well. I had to cherry-pick 9803921 and fd0f5f3 to get e93a341 to compile
though, but don't expect them to have an effect. Unfortunately I failed to
compile even older versions.

Please let me know if there is something else I could do and have a nice
