Bug#659903: cannot sync with squeeze (expected "Unison 2.40\n" but received "Unison 2.32\n…")

Package: unison
Version: 2.40.63-2
Severity: serious


thank you for packaging unison.

Since the new version of unison, I cannot sync with the version that is
found in squeeze systems:

$ unison marvin
Contacting server...
Fatal error: Received unexpected header from the server:
 expected "Unison 2.40\n" but received "Unison 2.32\n\000\000\000\000", 
 which differs at "Unison 2.3".

I have tried all compatibility version provided, namely:

  unison-2.27           unison-2.40           unison-latest-stable  
  unison-2.27.57        unison-2.40.63        

but none of them is compatible with version 2.32.52-1 that is found in

I set the priority to 'serious' because it feels rather bad that testing
has a version of unison that can't speak to the one in stable, but I'm
happy to accept your judgement on the severity of this bug.

In the meantime, I completely lost rather important synchronization
procedures that I had set up between my main working testing/wheezy
system and various squeeze boxes that provide me secondary services, so
you can find me sitting in a corner crying sad tears until this can be
made to work again.
