The upload appears to have introduced several other changes which aren't
documented in the changelog and don't appear related to fixing the bug;
the changelog just says "Backport fixes to 591862 and related items":

- a change to source format 3.0 (quilt); presumably to allow Kumar's
patches to be added, but still not great for a tpu during freeze
- (xmaxima) Depends change to use tk8.{5,4} instead of tk8.{4,3}; not so
- (maxima) Dropping of gv and maxima-emacs from Recommends to Suggests
- (maxima-emacs) Addition of maxima-doc to Depends, mime-support,
postscript-viewer, pdf-viewer to Recomemnds
- A build system change which results in debian/maxout.gnuplot,
debian/tests.lisp.patch, doc/info/extract_categories.sh.debdiff,
doc/info/include-maxima.texi, doc/man/ru/maxima.1 and tests/rtest14.ERR
disappearing from the source package; it's possible some or all of them
were never intended to be shipped, but it's not easy to tell.
