Re: libghc6-gtk-dev for lucid and maverick

Hi everyone,

I just had a look at the issue, backported the changes from 0.11.2 to
0.11.0 (we really don’t want to update more than necessary at this stage
of the freeze) but did not upload yet. The patch also changes the ABI,
so we’d need to rebuild all reverse dependencies (glade-0.11.0,
gtksourceview2-0.11.0, gtkglext-0.11.0, ltk- on my machine) via

What do you mean by „partly“? The fix helps in Christian’s testcase, but
is it just a workaround or are the remaining problem relatively small?
