Hello Jakub,

Thanks for reporting this.

I fixed this one as it was easy and obvious. I can' do much for the
other bug you commented on (#575753), I'm sorry for that but it goes
beyond my skills in PythonLand (that are close to zero).

Hmmm, that probablycomes from upstream's build process, I guess, as we
don't explicitely declare the dependency.
