I reported the bug, and I'll tell you why it was release critical.
xqf depends on qstat to do its work.  Now, the version of qstat in
potato when I reported the bug was 2.3e, and it had a conflicts line:

Conflicts: xqf (<< 0.9.2-1)

Where the current version of xqf was 0.8.99-1.  So, apt-get install xqf
resulted in an "Uninstallable" message.  I think not being able to
install the package counts as a release critical bug.
