Package: xdebconfigurator
Version: 1.24
Severity: important

/usr/sbin/xdebconfigurator line 590 reads:

 open (ED,"get-edid |parse-edid |");

When get-edid fails, the script goes into a loop
because get-edid sends errors to stderr and the following
line 601 does not catch the error:

 last LINE if($line =~ /Something special has happened/i);

To fix the problem change line 590 to:

 open (ED,"get-edid 2>&1 |parse-edid |");
