Don't we all have this problem?

I am sorry, but I don't understand - if you can't get it working, ask for
help. After all you are not alone. There are >500 developers. Write to
debian-devel that you can't get that thing working and let other developers
have a try. There is a big change that somebody gets it going.

I don't think that you are expected to invest a lot of time into your package
running against a barrier. You need to get the packaging done but you need not
be the person who understands the code and gets it working.

Report it upstream and if the author is not able to do anything about it - ask

Two Linux distributions it crashes on? That should wake the author up. I guess
it is working on SuSE Linux? ;)

I will take a look. Perhaps it's just a programmer error.

Seems like retiring is a new trend in Debian :(
