Unfortunately, the next time something breaks in sid, it will break
again, possibly in some other way. Users of sid are expected to be able
to cope on their own with such frequent breakages. As indicated in that
mailing list thread, there *is* an easy way around this issue in sid, so
no waiting is needed. Just use the workaround.

Or you could just use the workaround. It does not take more than a
couple of minutes to read, understand and use it. Or you could do what
I've been saying all along which is to use APT pinning and mix in live-*
packages into your config, which is also very easy and explained
step-by-step in live-manual.

You're welcome. I cannot stress enough, though, that if using sid causes
you such grief you should not build sid.
