Someone (not the maintainer) did so, but please note that the bug
remains open even when marked as fixed in a newer version. Debian's
stable release team prefers bugs to be fixed in unstable/testing before
they get fixed in (old)stable, so this is good.

The maintainer hasn't yet commented on how he wants to proceed.
Reasonable options seem to be to either update stable to the version
currently in testing (1.3.9) or to update to a later version of 1.2.X.
