That bug has since been re-filed (well, cloned) as #143825.  It may be
that Mr. Towns no longer feels the bug isn't release-critical, as he has
had many months to tag it "sarge-ignore", and hasn't.  I feel sure it
hasn't escaped his attention, as he is both familiar with it and I am
confident that he is diligent about scrutinizing the entire RC bug list
on an ongoing basis in his capacity as Release Manager.

Consequently, I don't honestly know if he will regard #143825 as a
show-stopper for the sarge release.

(Hint to those interested: the bug is tagged "help", and has been since
August.  I'm happy to discuss concrete, technical proposals for fixing
it on the debian-x mailing list.)
