No problem, I didn't think it bumped shlibs and thought it would give
it maximum testing delay if uploaded soonish to unstable.

That's the long term plan, but it was simple to fix this use case so it
was fixed, nautilus is a big beast.

My apologies, I was certain it did not use -V and reviewed the debdiff
*.changes, but on a sarge machine which did not show the shlibs bump.
I wont repeat this last mistake and will change pango to not use -V the
next time. I don't want you to think I forced pango into testing. :-/
