Package: libgdk-pixbuf-xlib-2.0-0
Version: 2.40.0+dfsg-7
Severity: important

Hello Debian GNOME Maintainers,

There is a circular dependency between libgdk-pixbuf-xlib-2.0-0 and libgdk-pixbuf2.0-0:

libgdk-pixbuf-xlib-2.0-0 	:Depends: libgdk-pixbuf-2.0-0 (>= 2.22.0) | libgdk-pixbuf2.0-0 (>= 2.22.0)
libgdk-pixbuf2.0-0 	:Depends: libgdk-pixbuf-xlib-2.0-0 (>= 2.40.0+dfsg-7)

Circular dependencies involving shared libraries are known to cause problems
during upgrade between stable releases, so we should try to avoid them.

Imagine a large red swirl here.
