The simple answer is that

(1) I screwed up paths in 1.18.5-2. Sorry about that, the problem got
    fixed within half a week back in July.

(2) Someone put that version into some Ubuntu repository, without
    bothering to do any testing, whatsoever.

You're not the first to experience this problem. As usual, a Launchpad
bug has been filed, but not much seems to have happened.

Please use libguestfs 1:1.18.1-1+deb7u1 which is going to be released
with wheezy (the upcoming stable Debian release) or whatever is current
in sid (unstable).
