OK... how serious is "serious"? This bug makes the program segfault upon
startup -- is that serious enough to justify uploading to stable? (The bug
appeared with the new XFree86 libraries in Potato r2.)

Actually, I was thinking of suggesting to the person to compile from the
woody sources (I suspect it does compile, and probably works better).
However, since this bug will affect all users of r2 who use the package,
I'd like to upload it to stable, if at all possible.


2+2=4. 2*2=4. 2^2=4. Therefore, +, *, and ^ are the same operation.
