The maintainer has been aware of the problem since before the potato release,
but refused to believe my bug report.  See bug #66350 (filed last June!).

Just get communicator-smotif-46, and I think netscape-java-46 and
netscape-spellchk-46 or something like that.  Testing/unstable has -47 so
communicator installs there.

Maybe that should be a priority for 2.2r3?
