I don't think this bug would meet the criteria for a stable release
update, but you might find that its pretty easy to generate and
install such a package on your own:

 # aptitude install module-assistant unionfs-source
 # m-a prepare -l 2.6.18-6-xen-amd64
 # m-a a-i unionfs -l 2.6.18-6-xen-amd64

dann frazier
