[xml/sgml-pkgs] Bug#482140: Reproducible and playing machine available

Hi there!

Some notes before starting:

1) IMHO this bug is Severity: important, it leaves GNOME in an not
   usable state (see attached log)

2) I found this bug around one and a half week ago, but I performed more
   tests before replying (yes, I'm quite maniac with bugs...)

I reproduced the error on three different installations: two plain etch
on powerpc (where "plain" means "Dekstop + Standard tasks, no more") and
another etch on i386 which I installed on May and then left there,
without never upgrading.

One of the two powerpc installation is still in the error state,
i.e. `apt-get dist-upgrade` produces an error.  I can put it online and
accessible via SSH only if you need it, it's a playing machine (the same
used for bug #501367 [1]), thus you can do whatever you want.  IIRC [2]
I still have the whole etch /etc folder, in case you want to analyze it.

I'm now installing etch on a QEMU image to check *again* if I can
reproduce this bug: the advantage of QEMU is that you've the -snapshot
option, thus you can test it whatever times you need.  I'll report back
as soon as the installation has finished.

Thx, bye,
Gismo / Luca
