package: xfce4-clipman
severity: serious
version: 2:1.1.0-2


both xfce4-clipman and xfce4-clipman-plugin install the file
'/usr/share/applications/xfce4-clipman-plugin.desktop', which causes
xfce4-clipman's installation to fail:

  Unpacking xfce4-clipman (from .../xfce4-clipman_2%3a1.1.0-2_amd64.deb) ... dpkg: error
  processing /var/cache/apt/archives/xfce4-clipman_2%3a1.1.0-2_amd64.deb (--unpack): trying to overwrite
  '/usr/share/applications/xfce4-clipman-plugin.desktop', which is also
  in package xfce4-clipman-plugin 2:1.0.2-1

this may only be a problem for upgrades from previous versions of xfce4-clipman-plugin.
