 In March, Josselin made gnome depend on gnome-dbg and
 gnome-desktop-environment recommend gnome-dbg in order to receive
 meaningful backtraces from people running unstable or testing -- this
 would have been reverted before the release.

 Now, in SVN, gnome-desktop-environment only suggests gnome-dbg and
 gnome only recommends it.  I suppose gnome won't recommend it in the
 final stable release.
