Daniel, thanks for the response. The issue is that we don't allow
changes into the stable release without a test case to prove that the
change was needed and successful in producing the intended outcome. We
also need to know what parts of the program a change touches so that we
can prevent regressions.

However given the seriousness of bug 1009536, I think we should waive
that requirement and instead focus on testing the program with a
prolonged stay in precise-proposed.

Given that I'm going to accept the upload. This bug will need to be
verified, however, so I've marked the test case in the description as
the one that users should try after installing the package from

** Description changed:

  I did a fresh install from XUbuntu Precise 64 bit with the alternate CD,
  installed BOINC with Synaptic and tried to run it.
+ [Test Case]
  After opening up BOINC the Menu bar is blank, it opens up the window to add projects.
  By clicking on the button next, BOINC crashes.
  I tried then the ppa from ppa:trekcaptainusa-tw/boinc, (version 7.0.27).
  Menu bar is visible, but i can't connect with the client (tried name and - it is not possible to add projects.
  So i think it is not a duplicate of the know bug in 7.0.24.
  XUbuntu 12.04
  Linux xubuntu2 3.2.0-24-generic #37-Ubuntu SMP Wed Apr 25 08:43:22 UTC 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
  first: BOINC 7.0.24+dfsg-1
  last: BOINC 7.0.27+dfsg-3.1
