Cassowary, which isn't a Debian package (scwm wants it, but at the
time cassowary wasn't free, or scwm required cassowary configured with
the non-free GTL, or something), fails.  

It fails in an interesting way: bison doesn't complain, but produces
an output file with a bunch of NULs in it.  I'll file a bug sometime,
but I thought it might be interesting enough to look at before I get
around to isolating the files which show the problem (it'll take me a
few days, I suspect).
