I am asking whether the patch that fixes this ICE is Debian-specific, or
has been or will be applied upstream, too. That's interesting because
our upstream (pdfTeX) has applied the workaround patch, but could drop
it if there's a working gcc-4.1.
And there was a slight criticism between the lines: I would have
preferred to find a changelog entry about that.
