Copying lastpage.sty under texmf-local and changing according to 
your suggestion does the trick. Thanks a lot.

Is it possible to patch preview-latex to not getting trapped on 
this problem? I hope so, because then I can just wait for the 
next release then forget about my local lastpage.sty, and 
everything is on par again.

I have just tried, there are at least 113 other packages with a 
trailing (Whatever) in the provides-line, most times it is the 
authors name, so I think there are strong arguments to patch 
preview, or you will have a hard time trying to persuade 113 
package authors. It might be easier to write a previewifier in 
this case to run over the texmf tree. ;-) There are quite a lot 
popular packages affected.
