That's my suspicion.

It's possible to go back in update the database manually, removing a few
lines per bug entry, to prevent the scripts from barfing; or to change
the scripts to avoid signalling that error.  So this isn't a big

I'm using the version of debbugs from Don Armstrong's bzr repository,
