Bugs as grave as this one are not acceptable in Debian packages for 
extended periods of time. The bug report has been open for over 1 
year, I have attached my patch on 2007-11-16. It is marked as 
critical since 2008-01-16. If you don't want such patches in the 
Debian package, you need to fix such bugs faster (and comment on 
patches in bugzilla faster). Of course I understand that this is 
difficult because there are never enough people to fix bugs (we have 
the same problem).

I admit that I should have followed up on the discussion in February, 
but I was quite busy and then forgot about it.

Cheers,
Stefan
