Yes, it was blocking, but deep in some program (which was actually called by dpkg postinst script), so it took some time to figure out.

I don't think it's that fragile to figure out whether it is regular file using os.path.isfile.

Indeed it was bug in a system, but actually this was only thing which got stuck because of it.
