Thanks for the pointer.

Part of the patch is already in our code. I've ported the rest and done 
some additional refactoring. Will commit after testing in the next few

An NMU (upload not from the D-I SVN repo) is never really a solution in the 
case of D-I as it tends to increase rather than reduce the work for 
maintainers. In general NMUs should not be needed where packages are 
maintained by a generally active team.
It also seems not indicated in this case as this is the first time a patch 
has been suggested for the issue.

Providing (preferably tested) patches against current SVN helps maintainers 
a lot more and is very much appreciated. Pinging maintainers on bug 
reports is also always appreciated.
