In the last days, there were a significant number of posts in this list
referring to this problem, so I also think that it should be fixed.

Looking at the "Depends" header in libgnomeui32 we can read:
Depends: libgnome32, gdk-imlib1, libaudiofile0, libc6, libesd0, [...]
We can see that the dependency is there, but you're right, the correct
version isn't specified, I think it should be somethink like
gdk-imlib1 (>= 1.9.4), but I'm not sure.
Knowing this new data, sending that bug report is OK, IMHO. What do you
