A small note, packages should never just be regenerated. A deb package
file should never ever change since that causes all kinds of
logistical problems. The version MUST be increased.

Going by your mail you already did compile it locally. Changing the
version is just so that apt-get won't undo your manual fix and you

Against what? If a recompile fixes the problem then libQT3 is not to
blame. No, you just have to get Andreas to rebuild it.
