Hi dear Seahorse maintainers,

cloned, one…]

This regression badly affects Tails upcoming 3.0 (Stretch-based)
release. It doesn't break *all* Seahorse use cases, so arguably it's
not RC, but it breaks enough important features to warrant being fixed
in Stretch IMO.

So I'd like to do an NMU that cherry-picks the minimal fix that
upstream has already applied (and I'll request an unblock to the
release team). Is it OK with you, or do you prefer to handle
it differently?

If I don't hear from you in the next few days, I'll upload to
