Package: samba
Version: 2:3.4.0-4
Severity: normal

I had the same problem on i386 as AMD64:

Unpacking replacement samba ...
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/samba_2%3a3.4.0-4_i386.deb (--unpack):
 trying to overwrite '/etc/pam.d/samba', which is also in package samba-common 2:3.4.0-3
dpkg-deb: subprocess paste killed by signal (Broken pipe)

By re-running aptitude the upgrade proceeded through correctly:
