I'm making it grave, as this package is basicly unmaintained (orphaned
since October 2004), and while in theory QA maintains these packages, in
practice only very occasionally work gets done on bugs. I try myself to
at least just read them, but that's not perfect either as I missed the
importance of this bug.
I'm Cc'ing the maintainers of the reverse depends, as their packages
risk removal if this bug is not resolved (hi exmh and topal
maintainers!). Please consider adopting this package as you depend on
