I should have been more specific: my systems run stable.

I haven't checked the history behind /proc/self/mounts and /proc/mounts,
nor whether they're supposed to be equivalent (I see a symlink from the
latter to the former, so hopefully); but assuming pointing directly to
the former, feel free to upload with high urgency so that the package
hits testing in a timely fashion.

I have no clear plans for the next d-i release as far as timing goes,
but having fixes in testing soon would be nice.
