The bug has been fixed in 2005.dfsg.2-13, which was uploaded to
oldstable-proposed-updates. Unfortunately, that doesn't seem to have
made it's way into oldstable, as is revealed here:

texlive-bin | 2005.dfsg.2-12 |     etch-m68k | source
texlive-bin | 2005.dfsg.2-12 |     oldstable | source
texlive-bin | 2005.dfsg.2-13 | oldstable-proposed-updates | source
texlive-bin | 2007.dfsg.2-4+lenny2 |        stable | source
texlive-bin |     2009-5 |       testing | source
texlive-bin |     2009-5 |      unstable | source

Contrast this with the "stable" version, which has migrated from
stable-proposed-updates to stable.

You should be able to grab the fixed package from the
oldstable-proposed-updates section of the archive.

Someone can correct me if my analysis is incorrect.


Your job is being a professor and researcher: That's one hell of a good excuse
