svgalib-1.28-2 (a.out) security fix released
This (a.out) release works around a security hole in previous releases
of svgalib; it should therefore go in the stable tree.
You can fix the security hole by removing the setuid bit from
restorefont with the command:
chmod 750 /usr/bin/restorefont
as root if you don't want to install the new package. There are a
couple of other changes, however, and it's important that the version
in the distribution is OK - Ian, could you put it in the stable tree

* remove setuid bit from restorefont - this is a workaround to
