Er... I don't know why I ended up typing this the second time around
when making the bug report -- the first time I was of course untarring
the resulting data.tar.gz part...

/usr/share/doc/dia-common/changelog.gz is the only file failing the
debsums check (which is kind of funny since it's right in the middle of
the archive... I first assumed a truncated archive, but it looks like it
might be actual corruption right in the middle... then again, with the
compression involved, it's hard to tell)
