I grabbed the 169.12-2 package from ftp.us.debian.org and built it on an
i386 machine and it runs fine so far with the 2.6.25-2-686 kernel.
Looks good to me.

I can't test the library problem since I only have a 6200 not an 8xxx
card in here.  My only 8xxx card is the 8600GT in my amd64 box.

It does appear that it might have failed to remove the diversions from
before, even though it no longer creates them.  Did the old prerm script
fail to remove the diversions, or does it not do that on upgrades, only
on full remove?  Either way it still needs to be handled somehow.

The old postrm only gets rid of the diversion on remove or purge, not on
upgrade, so we are now left with an old diversion that will never be
removed while it should have been removed when the new package was
