Segmentation fault in dpkg and aptitude



After making the following changes to pull in sid's bluez 4.0 package in
a lenny system, I'm now getting segmentation faults when I run dpkg and
aptitude. Any thoughts on how to recover from this?

For example:

$ sudo aptitude update
Segmentation fault

Here are some messages from /var/log/syslog:
