Thanks for adding to the bug report --- I had been a bit busy then
travelling without internet access for almost three weeks so had not got
around to it.

That version has come through to experimental but it will be some time
(maybe a week) before the build daemon will get to it because we have a
backlog of some 500 packages to build in unstable (plus another 100 or
200 binNMUs to be scheduled too).

OK, I'll see if I can do a manual build of iceweasel 12.0 this weekend.
 I won't build the latest version in unstable as there is no point in
building a version that still has the madvise() lockup bug.
