deluser output is missing a linebreak:
devildante at devildante-laptop:~/Coding/adduser-3.112ubuntu2$ sudo deluser --remove-home --backup-to /home/old_homes dummy
Looking for files to backup/remove ...
Backing up files to be removed to /home/old_homes ...
(this line) -> backup_name = /home/old_homes/dummy.tar/bin/tar: Removing leading `/' from member names
Removing files ...
Removing user `dummy' ...
Warning: group `dummy' has no more members.

In Ubuntu, we've applied the attached patch to achieve the following:

  * deluser: added missing linebreak at line 338 (LP: #613204)
