I can reproduce this in a chroot, it appears that this is a dpkg issue. In the old deb there is a file "usr/share/pyshared/gyp-0.1.egg-info - in the new deb this is replaced by a directory:

# dpkg --version ; dpkg -i /var/cache/apt/archives/gyp_0.1~svn1654-1_all.deb ; dpkg -D100 -i /var/cache/apt/archives/gyp_0.1~svn1729-3_all.deb
Debian `dpkg' package management program version 1.17.5 (amd64).
