maybe I should clarify a bit: while I replicated a feature available in
Ubuntu, I did not copy their patch over! This started out as an
independent work and only later did I realise that Ubuntu had already
patched this. If you compare my patch (both the first, defective one and
the second, corrected one) to their package, you should see that I take
a different approach from how things are done in the Ubuntu package.

Bearing this in mind, Colin Watsons opinion is certainly welcome, but is
his approval really needed to consider this patch?

Best regards,
Olaf Mandel
