Yes, but repetative demands aside, tluxt does have a point - libkmid
*does* depend on libglib1.3-12, which is not available anymore. 

Last week, when I had to rebuild my machine from bare metal, I tried
what tluxt did, and found exactly the same problem. libglib1.3-13
doesn't (for whatever reason) satisfy the dependency (although it does
say >= 1.3-12 ). At that time, I went trolling through the assorted
mirrors and snagged a copy of the libglib1.3-12 deb and installed it. I
didn't keep it around accidentally, since I'd pulled it into my temp
directory, which I've setup to autoclean.

I wasn't particularly worried, since I figured it would be fixed in a
day or a few. I *still* figure that. After all, if I choose to track
things besides stable, then what I get is subject to change on no
notice, neh?

Notice to Tluxt: Take advantage of this opportunity to check out one of
the other window managers for a while. I've been mucking about with
fluxbox recently...

Thanks for all the hard work, everyone.
