the currently shipping version of this package contains a rather glaring
security hole with regards to locking screen savers under X.

	Fix seems to be commenting any references to XF86_Ungrab and
XF86_ClearGrab, at least for the time being.  I'm not sure what the long

Closes: 656500
 xkeyboard-config (2.5-1) unstable; urgency=low
   * New upstream release, including:
     - Hide ClearGrab/CloseGrabs actions behind an option.
   * To get those actions back, use the grab:break_actions option. At
     the moment, the corresponding actionve has been disabled on the
     server side as a hot fix for CVE-2012-0064 (Closes: #656500).
   * Since there's a workaround on the server side already, do not use
     a high urgency, so that this new upstream release and its various
     changes can be tested for a while in unstable.
   * Update URL in watch file.
   * Add xsltproc, xutils-dev build-deps.
   * Keep /usr/share/man out of the udeb, due to a newly-added manpage.
