Heads up: libcurl2 bug breaks xserver-xfree86 pre/postinst

Hi all,

Just wanted to warn you that you will probably be getting a lot of
duplicate bug reports about xserver-xfree86 installs crashing in
pre/postinst.  This is a result of discover silently exiting when libcurl2
version 7.12.0-1 is installed, since the latest libcurl2 package has
changed sonames.  See bug # 252348 and my comment in bug # 251690.  Please
tell the submitters to reinstall libcurl2 version 7.11.2-1 or lower and see
if their problem still happens.
