Except that dpkg is trying to do something with it during the 
lbidb4.7-java-gcj update.

I gather it is in one or more scripts associated with the 
libdb4.7-java-gcj package since I'm getting messages related to that 
package immediately before and after the gcj-dbtool-4.2 error. Moreover, 
dpkg seems to be saying that the program is referenced in both the old 
and new packages.

All I know is that has just started happening and it's preventing me 
from installing the Squeeze updates.
