As I like to say: it's never the fault of the lens ;) The aptpreferences
lens is a little special in that it does not produce a tree at all when
the input file is empty; most other lenses produce at least a blank
node.

The bug was really in tree_replace. The patch simply consists of
deleting redundant code and I just pushed it:

Subject: [PATCH] * src/augeas.c (tree_replace): don't bother marking the
new parent as dirty

We call tree_rm on it earlier, which already marks it as dirty.

This line also triggered a SEGV when sub == NULL; this happened, for
example, when /etc/apt/preferences was an empty file.
