I have already added a hint telling britney to ignore this bug when
considering the gnome-vfs2 update for testing.  This is an RC-severity bug,
but it only applies to the version in unstable at present, and getting GNOME
2.10 into testing and unblocking the many packages currently stuck in
unstable should be a higher priority at the moment than rebuilding against
the latest fam.  That rebuild can easily be done once GNOME 2.10 has reached
testing, without causing problems for hundreds of other packages and
complicating transitions to etch.

So, please just ignore this bug until gnome-vfs2 2.10.1 has reached testing.
