For the future, please report the problem as soon as you experienced it,
it's better for everyone ;-)

This is a known issue  and already resolved upstream .
I planned to release a new package fixing this bug , but two days
later Timo Hoening (ThinkFinger upstream) posted about releasing a
better patch soon after Nov 4th . And indeed ThinkFinger got some
long-awaited commits in the last weeks .
However, since Timo advised of a new (and last) release, I'd prefer to
wait to package the new release instead. Hope you can wait a bit more!
