  Indeed, but there's no libsylpheed-0 package in Debian, so it looks like a
  Ubuntu specific thing. Maybe you should file a bug in launchpad
  requesting to sync a newer version of the library.

  Package for the separate sylpheed library is libsylph1, and it doesn't
  contain that file: http://packages.debian.org/sid/libsylph1 (see the list
  of files on any architecture)

  If they have conflicting files you should remove one of them or start
  --force-ing things. The later may bring undesired effects to the scene.

  man apt, man dpkg...
