The bug has to have severity set to critical, grave or serious. I think
the geometry issue is nearly grave (makes the package in question
unusable or mostly so). IMHO you might want to keep roxterm pointed to
roxterm-gtk2 until the bug was fixed, or enable the workaround by
default. Anyway this is your package, you decide :)

${shlibs:Depends} should be set by debhelper to the minimum version
required by this package upon version information from the library at
build time. If you are using a feature that is only available after
libvte9 1:0.28.1-2 but the dependency says 'libvte9 (>= 1:0.24.0)' then
it is a bug of libvte9 package.
