Lesstif bug breaking other software, no action for two months
There are two open bugs:
* #287187 assigned to lesstif1-1, priority important
* #279402 assigned to xastir, priority minor
that are essentially the same: A bug in lesstif breaks menus of
software that are using it.
I've provided information about a working patch on both of these
bugs (and tagged them with +patch) over two months ago, but there
hasn't been any maintainer action on either of these bugs since
then - nor in lesstif in general. Meanwhile lesstif has been NMU'd
twice during last month.
Now, as sarge's release seems to be really approaching I've started
to wonder if we are going to be stuck with this annoyance until etch.
Would a NMU for this be allowed, and even accepted in sarge, if
someone is willing to do a third NMU in a row for lesstif?
 As I am not the originator of neither of those bugs, I've been
vary on merging them or reassigning #279402 to lesstif (where
 In my opinion, minor is too low priority - while this bug doesn't
make the software totally unusable, it's quite annoying and makes
it very hard to use for new users (who doesn't remember, or even
know, what the incorrectly displayed menu items really say).
 I'm not a DD, but I can provide the patch as a ready to be build
diff on top of lesstif 1:0.93.94-11.2 if that will be any help.
