Thanks for this.  I assume the stable upload would be 2.0alpha-4
+squeeze1 or similar? (Or 2.0alpha-4.1~squeeze1 would work, I suppose).

The FTBFS would only occur if the lenny version were built with
_GNU_SOURCE defined (which it obviously wasn't, given that it built to
start with); only later versions of (e)glibc unconditionally define
getline().  On that basis, please only include the security-related
changes for oldstable.

Thanks; uploaded as 2.0alpha-4+squeeze1 and 2.0alpha-3+lenny1.

I've marked both for acceptance at the next dinstall; thanks.
