I am sorry, Matt, but it was not fixed. You should have tagged the
bug wontfix and leave it open.

What, and then require to always add two patches because UML by
itself produces buggy packages?

No, this is not a solution if you ask me. You are packaging a kernel
patch that has 'xterm' hardcoded in it. Debian's alternatives system
exists specifically to address this problem. So please, use it.

I do not see a single point why the UML kernel patch should be as
pristine as possible. This is a minor modification required to
properly integrate with Debian.

Please do not CC me when replying to lists; I read them!
