Oh ooops - seems like my personal multitasking abilities were disabled
for a while... sorry.

Since this will be my first package ever: how do I "correct" my bug
report 361253 against WNPP? Simply with:

-   Version         : x.y.z
+   Version         : 0.19.3

I will surely have the 3 books at my desk when packaging this. Sorry for
my quick & overly enthusiastic bug report, abd thanks a lot for taking
the time and correcting me.

I CC it to debian-mentors, since I obviously need some help and don't
wanna bother in -devel too much.
