[Python-modules-team] Bug#521564: python-cairo: Uninstallable (at least when using cowbuilder)

Package: python-cairo
Version: 1.8.4-2
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable


When installing python-cairo in cowbuilder, I get the following error:

Unpacking python-cairo (from .../python-cairo_1.8.4-2_amd64.deb) ...
pycentral: pycentral pkgremove: package python-cairo is not installed
pycentral pkgremove: package python-cairo is not installed
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/python-cairo_1.8.4-2_amd64.deb (--unpack):
 subprocess pre-installation script returned error exit status 1

I haven't noticed any issue with this preinst script when python-cairo was updated in
my system, I guess it is hence a problem on first install only.
