[maemo-developers] [maemo-developers] docpurge in maemo 2.1

I've noticed something odd in maemo 2.1.
When installing / upgrading packages in scratchbox, in the "Setting up" 
stage apt/dpkg can get stuck for large amounts of time (forever?).
I've found this in gtk2.0-examples for instance, in the context of 
sardine work.
It looks like apt/dpkg gets stalled while running /usr/sbin7docpurge 
with a large number of files listed in the command line.

- Why is docpurge executed when installing packages in scratchbox 
environment in the first place? You don't really need (or want) to 
remove documentation there.
- In any case, why does it get stalled? In the case of gtk2.0-examples 
it was still stalled after several hours.

docpurge comes in the maemo 2.1 rootstraps, both i386 and armel.
In the sardine build robot I work around this by deleting docpurge. It 
would be good to have this fixed.
