Package: wine-bin-unstable
Version: 1.5.7-2
Followup-For: Bug #680017

Dear Maintainer,

I'm not sure that this bug-report is exactly the right place to record
this failure, but since somebody else has already mention it I figured
I'd add some more detail.

- I've been running Testing for several months, playing Windows games in
  Wine quite happily.
- To help ensure the best compatibility, I manually installed
  wine-unstable from unstable, which seems to have given me
  "wine-unstable 1.5.6-2".
- This evening I saw updated packages available, but when apt-get tries
  to install them, it downloads and unpacks most of them then fails at
  the configuration step, giving the same output as in the previous

$ sudo dpkg --configure --pending
Setting up wine-bin-unstable (1.5.7-2) ...
update-binfmts: warning: couldn't find information about 'wine' to import
update-binfmts: exiting due to previous errors
update-alternatives: error: alternative path /usr/bin/wine32-unstable doesn't exist
dpkg: error processing wine-bin-unstable (--configure):
 subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 2
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of wine-unstable:
 wine-unstable depends on wine-bin-unstable (>= 1.5.7-2) | wine64-bin; however:
  Package wine-bin-unstable is not configured yet.
  Package wine64-bin is not installed.

dpkg: error processing wine-unstable (--configure):
 dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
Errors were encountered while processing:

- I have tried "apt-get remove --purge"-ing all packages matching
  "*wine*" then re-installing wine-unstable:i386, but I got the same
