On its own, I would not consider failure to lock the screen in specific
situations a high priority issue because of the other consequences of
having physical access to a machine. Normally I would suggest to fix the
bug through the regular stable update channel.

However, am I correct that this is a regression in the DSA for
acpi-support (0.140-5+deb7u3)? If so, we can fix it through stable
security since it's a regression introduced in that channel.
