Well, the segfaults it fixes were happening accidentally. The
transitions were on purpose. ;-)

My current rule of thumb: Ignore any uninstallability which lasts less
than two days during the next two weeks. And on desktop installations where
apt or aptitude usually hold back hundreds of packages, I'd just wait
until the whole bumpy ride is over. :-)
