It's important to file these bugs, especially at release/freeze time or
we can't tell what the package does. It also seems to fix a bug in the
previous upload which was:

* New upstream release.
* Urgency medium to try and beat the freeze.
* debian/source/format: Use 3.0 quilt source format
* debian/compat, debian/control, debian/rules: Switch dh

- all things which we don't want to see with a medium urgency.

However, I've updated the hint to a medium urgency.
