I'd say, file a bug upstream, then file a bug in Debian with the
upstream bug number and tagged +upstream, and then comment on the
upstream bug with the Debian bug number.

It largely depends on the relative responsiveness of upstream and
the Debian maintainer, which can only be learnt by trying this and
seeing what happens next.
