Indeed, in the philosophical sense of the word, they are not unrelated.
However, they are still two independent packages, which are supposed
to work independently (neither of them depends on the other), so in this
sense, they are very much unrelated.
(As far as I know, the "breaks unrelated software" term describes
the behavior when someone installs software package A, and then
software package B suddenly stops working. This is exactly what
is happening here.)

There is no f**** log written in this case, only this error message.
(I have searched the xen log directory, and this error message
does not turn up anywhere.)
Neither is there any log file written for linker crashes (#536173) nor
omitted mission-critical features (#536175),
<mailto:536175 at bugs.debian.org> so can you please
stop blaming me for that?
