As the maintainer of the yara package and (upstream) author of go-yara,
I am aware of the problem. The culprit is the yara package, not

I don't know yet how yara/4.1.0 will address the API/ABI incompatibility
issue that is the root cause of this bug. For the time being I think
I'll leave the yara package in unstable in its current broken state. (My
upload to unstable was an error.)

Done, see above. (I hope I have whispered the right things at the BTS.)

That was pretty much my plan. Thanks.
