Debian/Etch fails to upgrade x11-common ??

When I was trying to upgrade my etch to lenny, x11-common failed to upgrade properly. I was getting the following error message:

trying to overwrite `/usr/X11R6/bin', which is also in package aaa-base

For somebody who is really as annoyed (to hell) as me, this fixed the (!@#!$%$) problem for me:

dpkg -i --force-overwrite /var/cache/apt/archives/x11-common_1%3a7.3+18_all.deb
