I appreciate your reaching out to solve this bug.  I am no longer running a
Debian system anymore.  While I appreciate the effort to fix this bug, it's
too little far too late.  This bug doesn't even seem to have been noticed
by any developers, let alone fixed, and I filed it in 2011, almost 3 years
ago to the day.  I doubt it even effects anybody anymore.
