The reason I mentioned that one is that it's another localised fix to
the regex engine which solves an infinite loop problem.  I suspect that
if it winds up in testing, we'll probably see a critical bug filed about

Daniel fixed 174267 already.  The -9 upload will have the fix.  

Hmm.  For some reason I have in my notes here that 167909 was fixed and
should have been closed.

The CVS ChangeLog has it:

      - debian/patches/cvs.dpatch: Update.
        (Closes: #171550, #170507, #167909)

But the one that got committed doesn't for some reasons.  I also hadn't
noticed it in the build log because it seems that bugs with tags appear
near the bottom of the page.  I'll have to remember to look there, too.
