Package: vim
Version: 1:7.0-094+1
Severity: important

Preparing to replace vim 1:6.3-071+1sarge1 (using 
.../vim_1%3a7.0-094+1_i386.de$Unpacking replacement vim ...
dpkg: error processing
/var/cache/apt/archives/vim_1%3a7.0-094+1_i386.deb (--unpack):
 trying to overwrite `/usr/share/doc/vim', which is also in package

I uninstalled vim-doc, and vim installed properly. I then reinstalled
vim-doc and all was well. But this should be automatic.

I'm giving this a higher priority because it affects the sarge to etch
