I don't see how your bug report could have happened given the above.
vim-tiny's Conflicts (as well as the Depends on a specific version of
vim-common) should have caused the old vim-common to be removed before
vim-tiny was installed. Even without that, the Replaces would have
allowed vim-tiny to overwrite the old /etc/vim/vimrc.tiny. Maybe a
bug in aptsh? Try doing an "apt-get upgrade" instead.
