severity 756450 important

Looking at https://www.debian.org/Bugs/Developer#severities they define critical
(and grave) as ``*introduces* a security hole'', so I agree with you of the importance
of this bug, but I see this as an inherent security flaw that needs to get addressed,
rather then a critical bug that has appeared.

This definition becomes important when considering that debian automatically drops
packages from testing that have critical, grave, or serious marked against them and
has already dropped ecryptfs from testing because of this bug.

As this (will) effects a lot of people, including myself who can no longer access their
files, and I see no response to this bug, I have dropped the severity to important,
both because in terms of description, it best fits the bug, given that this doesn't effect
how the package worked before; and because it gives it the highest severity without
tripping out the automation routines.

@Package Maintainers, feel free to give and exercise a different view as you see fit, I
hope I haven't overstepped the mark.
