I've found that there was a bug report that I did not realize was
related to the symptoms I was experiencing. The action taken way back
when was to refer the problem to upstream. Now, today, the fix is
ready and waiting upstream. The best alternative for me, now, is to
let the system work. (Jessie and Sid are also a v 4.4.2) I don't
usually succeed the first time I try something new to me like building
a Debian package from foreign source code.

Thanks, I'm happy.
