Bug#550140: Fails to install

Package: science-config
Version: 0.7
Severity: grave

When I try and install this package, this is what happens:

Preparing to replace science-config 0.7 (using .../science-config_0.7_all.deb) ...
Unpacking replacement science-config ...
Setting up science-config (0.7) ...
Debian Science configuration file /etc/blends/science/science.conf is missing.
dpkg: error processing science-config (--install):
 subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 255

The file it references is in the deb, so I'm guessing there must be a flaw in the scripts logic.
