Yep, you do so. Please, just take look first on the package.
I admit I looked at the wheezy package originally, rather than the
squeeze one, to make sure that the proposed fix was applied there.
However, I wasn't expecting anything as crazy as the squeeze package.
It declares itself as source format "3.0 (quilt)", but is shipped as
tarball-in-tarball. In fact, it's not just tarball-in-tarball, but the
.orig.tar.gz contains nothing but another .tgz which is somewhat
boggling tbh. Do you know if there's any logic at all to the packaging?
I do note that the newer versions look saner, thankfully...
