Please unblock gpsd-2.37-7

Hi Release Team,

unfortunately the Python based tools which ship with gpsd don't work with
Lenny's Python2.5 as the pty module is broken. Unfortunately upstream and me
could  not yet figure out if that's a Python, gcc, glibc or kernel problem
(yeah, there's even a minor chance that the problem lies somewhere in the gpsd
python modules).
As i doubt that the real bug will be fixed in time for Lenny, I've patched the
Python tools from gpsd to use python 2.4, which is a bit annoying, but better
than delivering broken tools.
