We should just force SymLinksIfOwnerMatch for /home to solve this.

It's important but I wouldn't call this one release-critical.

I fixed these two in I didn't close the bugs because I still
need to fix them for the dpkg in potato.

filters is no longer in frozen, so this can be excluded as well.

Everyone who has a package with a setuid program or something that runs
as root should check if it uses gettext, and if so recompile it with
the latest gettext installed. Please not that this is not necessary for
programs that use the gettext from libc6.
