I see that this has been uploaded now to unstable.  Sorry for not commenting

If pango1.0 is *still* not threadsafe even after the fixes in 1.14.8, why is
it important to try to fix this crash in pango1.0 instead of fixing it
comprehensively in nautilus?

Unfortunately, the upload to unstable includes bumped shlibs, because
pango1.0 bumps the shlibs for every new upstream version.  I don't know
whether the shlibs change is correct in this case; it certainly means we're
going to have a hard time shipping with 1.14.7 now, though, given that there
are already 27 packages blocking on the new pango1.0 update and it's only 2
days old...
