[Dctrl-tools-devel] Bug#589827: dctrl-tools: small fix for example in manpage

Package: dctrl-tools
Version: 2.14
Severity: minor

The last example in the manpage, about listing packages by size, has a small problem: if any installed packages have no Installed-Size, paste chokes and you end up with package names in the first column, instead of sizes, for the rest of the list.

A quick solution for this would be adding "-a -FInstalled-Size --gt 0" to the grep-status call.
