Thanks for this. Overall, I'm happy with the patch but note that
#573551 still appears to be open; assuming I'm reading the discussion in
the bug log correctly, should it not have been marked as closed with the
upload of 2.6.7-1 back in March?
I'm also guessing that there's a typo in this:

given that Lenny is the only supported Debian release which *doesn't*
use 2.88 or later.
