Setting an appropriate severity is not hiding a problem.

True, thats why I tagged 752275 moreinfo and asked some specific questions. Maybe this bug is important indeed, but atm I cannot see why it would be. If 752275 would still be of RC severity it would prevent the package to enter jessie and prevent us from providing wheezy-backports too. *That* to be considered punishment of our users I would agree. cheers, Holger
