It is a problem with the deb (actually a problem between
libgnomeprint11 and libgnomeprint-bin)

# dpkg -D200 -i libgnomeprint11_0.25-ximian.6_i386.deb
(Reading database ... 99012 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to replace libgnomeprint11 0.25-helix1 (using libgnomeprint11_0.25-ximian.6_i386.deb) ...
Unpacking replacement libgnomeprint11 ...
dpkg: error processing libgnomeprint11_0.25-ximian.6_i386.deb (--install):
 trying to overwrite `/usr/share/man/man1/gnome-font-install.1.gz', which is also in package libgnomeprint-bin
dpkg-deb: subprocess paste killed by signal (Broken pipe)
Errors were encountered while processing:

You should probably check the version number on libgnomeprint-bin to
see what you have installed.  I notice that I am running libgnomeprint
0.28 instead of 0.25 but then I pull from the testing pool so that
could be why I have a newer version.
