retitle 529940 lib32asound2: symbol versioning changed in an incompatible way (ALSA_0.9.0rc4/8 dropped)


it seems that between 1.0.19-1 and 1.0.20-1 the list of symbols in
lib32asound2 changed. More precisely, the list of symbols remained but
their associated versioning changed: all symbols associated with
ALSA_0.9.0rc4 and ALSA_0.9.0rc8 were changed to live under ALSA_0.9
instead, making applications compiled against <= 1.0.19 fail to start
due to missing symbols.

Note that this problem affects the 32-bit library in amd64, but not the
native libraries nor in i386 nor amd64.

Also note that we've started having applications like WINE 1.1.19 in
experimental rebuilt against 1.0.20, and which don't work against
alsa-lib 1.0.19 either. And we'll have no easy way to detect these,
since shlibs are not bumped.

Will you be able to upload fixed packages in a timely manner?


- Are you sure we're good?
- Always.
