E: Method rred has died unexpectedly!

I was stuck with the following message:

$ sudo pbuilder --update
...

Get:10 http://ftp.fr.debian.org sid/main 2012-05-19-0215.05.pdiff [2934 B]
E: Method rred has died unexpectedly!
E: Sub-process rred received a segmentation fault.

Easy work around:
$ sudo pbuilder login --save-after-login
# echo "Acquire::Pdiffs { "false"; };" > /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/nopdiff
that's all !

Looks like syntax changed to:

$ cat /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/nopdiff
Acquire::Pdiffs "false";

Otherwise directly:

$ sudo apt-get update -o Acquire::PDiffs=false
