Package: libspf0
Version: 0.999-1.0.0-p3-3

Please have a look at #464029 for an example of the problem this causes.

Attached is a patch which fixes this within libspf (by resetting the
level in SPF_smtp_from()). I've tested it (together with the patch for
#392927) and it fixes the issue for me.

I am not simply reassigning the bug to libspf, because the library
maintainer/author might not think that changing its code is the correct
thing to do (and decide that the variable should be explicitly reset by
the library client). I have not been able to find any API documentation
which would support either view.

Also, it would be really nice if you could upload a fix for this and
#392927 to etch-proposed-updates...
