4.50-6 has been uploaded to unstable last weekend and thus is not old
enough to get into testing. I consider the libnss-ldap issue a
nuisance, but not bad enough a but to warrant an upload with non-low
priority, risking breakage in other areas.

The fix for the libnss-ldap issues has issues with the Installer,
which is the cause for the fix being tested _very_ thoroughly. The
installer, in my opinion, is much more important than libnss-ldap.

When 4.50-6 passes the 10 days margin, I will ask for consideration to
include ths version into testing, but currently it is way too early.
