Aha.. What about ownership in /var/lib/install?

So I noticed. However, there is no problem when only using commandline
all the time :)
I guess app-installer-tool should actually be smart, and switch to
user install if it's running as root...

But that still leaves the question. Is there something wrong with my
maemodict package or do people encounter other problems?
In the first case: what's wrong? In the latter, how do people avoid
running into these problems?
