Jan Hauke Rahm did comment on #585658, if that's the bug you are

Jan did most of the work for the first of those two versions which
closed multiple bugs. As Jan said, a new upload for a single bug which
only had a partial fix did not seem to be as important as the other

I did the second upload with the sole requirement of fixing RC bugs
with minimal changes as this was at the start of the freeze.
multi-tarball support is not release-critical, so there was no room for
any work on that issue. 

It is not possible for every upload to fix every outstanding bug.

Is your patch an improvement on the partial fix or are there still
issues? Have you tested your patch with single-tarball packages and
other setups or only with your own? I can look at a new upload to
experimental but changes in unstable will need to wait until after
Wheezy is released.

Please feed back to the existing bug report.
