Just to clarify the above, it's only the disk usage on the individual 
package line that is incorrect: the overall total near the top of the 
interface ("Will use xxx MB of disk space") is correct.

libreoffice-dbg is another such package (showing -870MB when selected 
for installation instead of the correct +3,425MB).
