I'm wondering whether we should remove the packages that show these
problems from Debian. We can't do anything about it and a crash is
something I can hardly tolerate?
I know that the database package is currently not packaged by us, but I
think that octave-ftp has the same problems, hasn't it?
 TTBOMK, it's a problem with the SWIG wrapper, isn't it?
