Thanks for working on this.
Judging from the bug log, it appears that this problem also affects the
package in unstable, and has not yet been fixed there? That's generally
a pre-requisite for getting the patch accepted for stable, as it means
the patch has been tested in Debian for at least a short time, allowing
any obvious issues to be ironed out.
