Package: wine32
Version: 1.6.2-5
Severity: serious
Justification: Policy 7.6.1

Dear Maintainer,

trying to switch from wine-unstable to wine, I encountered the following:

(Reading database ... 280522 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to unpack .../wine32_1.6.2-5_i386.deb ...
Unpacking wine32 (1.6.2-5) ...
dpkg: error processing archive /var/cache/apt/archives/wine32_1.6.2-5_i386.deb (--unpack):
 trying to overwrite '/usr/share/wine/gecko/wine_gecko-1.5-x86.msi', which is also in package wine32-unstable 1.5.31-1
configured to not write apport reports
                                      Processing triggers for man-db (2.6.6-1) ...
Errors were encountered while processing:

I guess wine32 should "Replaces:" and "Breaks:" wine32-unstable, but that is your call :-)

Thanks for your work,
