pose bug


I'd like to share with you an issue on pose package and a grave functionality 

So the story begins: pose is a 'Palm OS Emulator' package. The last version in 
sid doesn't work because of a grave functionality bug [1].

The previous version of the package was compiled using gcc 2.95 and the 
version 1.0 of the fltk library, and everything was almost O.K.. Last version 
in sid was compiled using gcc 3.3 and fltk 1.1, and the packages build works 
nicely but the application doesn't.

I've been a few weeks trying to solve the problem, but I'm not able to fix the 
problem. I forwarded the bug to upstream author, but pose is an abandoned 

So, once the problem is exposed, there are two possible alternatives:

A) Fix the bug: As I said before, help is welcome. If you can help me to fix 
the bug, I'd be very glad.

B) Upload a package that works, but using gcc 2.95 and fltk 1.0.

I'd like to hear your opinions on this issue.
