ghostscript behaviour changes: look out for regressions


in order to fix CVE-2010-2055, the latest ghostscript version in sid was
changed to not look for some files in the current directory (bugs
#584653 and #584663).  This could break some of its users, but is
necessary to avoid security issues.  So if one of your packages, or one
of the programs you use, depends on ghostscript, please look out for
regressions when upgrading to 8.71~dfsg2-6.1.  If you find any, please
also check whether the same problem exists with ghostscript 9.00~dfsg-2
from experimental.  Barring major issues ghostscript 8.71~dfsg2-6.1 will
hit squeeze over the weekend.
