Problem with octave-plplot

The message below reports a bug involving two packages in sarge that are out
of sync, due to an API-related problem.  This is a RC bug (although no bug
report has been filled) which is fixed in sid.  What should we do?

Indeed, it is.  This problem is already fixed in sid (a.k.a. unstable) with
the following versions:


Let us hope that these packages will enter sarge before release.
