Error with kdm during apt-get install

I'm new to debian. I've been getting the following error when I try to install mysql-navigator with the command:
apt-get install mysql-navigator

Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
The following NEW packages will be installed:

There seems to be something wrong with kdm. Does anyone know how to resolve this problem? Thanks for any help.

It's a known bug - there's a patch for the "kdm.config" file in this bug report - . The file is located in /var/lib/dpkg/info and you can just make the changes manually (it's only a two line change).
