Re: Security slightly compromised. Why is lenny-security altering uw-imap_2007b~dfsg.orig.tar.gz?

I am a bit surprised that a security update requires modifications to
the upstream tar ball.
If the tarball has changed then how about a 7:2007b~dfsg2-<whatever>?
That way the filename will differ and no conflict will arise.
I would speculate this was a mistake, and the best approach would be to
rebuild the security update with the correct tar ball.
Otherwise, if the changes to the tar ball where deliberate, change the
filename as above.
