Uploaded, since that would fix #509398 and #509653.

I also did not forget to pass -v1.0.2-1 in order to include your last 'Closes' 
to in the *.changes file, and let the archive code deal with BTS as well.

A lintian override (I just saw), which I think is better to be fixed (with the 
next upstream release, no rush of course), than overridden:

O: mandos-client: manpage-has-errors-from-man 
usr/share/man/man8/plugin-runner.8mandos.gz 297: warning [p 4, 5.8i]: can't 
break line

Other lintian overrides seem to be relevant, since these non-standard file 
permissions are due guarding sensible data.

P.S. as we all know the beauty of such potential (conditional) memleaks (which 
is also trivial to fix) is that they are subtle, rare and hard to reproduce, 
i.e it *eventually* gets worst when your memory has been exhausted. Once 
reported by the users (usually during the freeze, upon release;-), developers 
generally pray hard for these be to unbounded and clearly manifestable ;-) 
I'm glad you fixed it.
