Fixed according to recent libgtk upload. Can we downgrade this to normal (since
they brought up some minor translation bugs?)

Is this being actively maintained? If not, it seems
like a perfect remove.

Nasty bugs, but they're livable. I would tack up some notices
about "highly unstable" and downgrade these to normal.

Somebody needs to NMU this again, as the maintainer doesn't seem
to be around, and at least 55618 is a simple (but fatal) bug.
If we take this out, we need to move all the Java programs
that need a virtual machine to contrib again.

Does anyone actually use this package? (-:

I don't understand why this is an important problem.
It runs the programs it's linked against.

I wouldn't call it a important bug. It's a normal bug (doesn't
work quite right in some circumstances) and a wishlist bug
(the "locks up" is merely cosmetic. It's annoying, but definetly
not fatal.)
