Excellent.  I have just asked the BTS to change the recorded submitter of
#251088, so in 15 minutes or so you should be recorded as its submitter.

You can then contact me and the rest of the debian-x mailing list about
this issue by mailing 251088@bugs.debian.org, and we can reach you by
mailing 251088-submitter@bugs.debian.org.  That will ensure all relevant
discussion gets logged to the bug.

I'm tagging this bug "moreinfo" until you get a chance to tell us how
your experiments go.

I guess we'll need to coordinate application of this fix with the
heimdal maintainer?
