Bug#826090: mate-terminal broken after todays upgrade (debian testing)

I'm using debian testing on my desktop with apt-listbugs installed.
apt-listbugs prevents me from installing broken things... at least,
when Adrian doesn't close useful bug reports.

After doing update/upgrade/dist-upgrade for 5-6 months almost every
day (which meant installing and upgrading, surprisingly, tens of
thousands of packages), this is the FIRST time this happened. So, you
should reconsider your personal, original definition of "testing".

If you want to ban everyone posting bugs in debian testing, therefore
dangerously rendering apt-listbugs USELESS and making testing unstable
or even broken because "it's just testing", you have no business in
doing anything with testing, stick to unstable.

Anyway, forget it: Back to the subject, waiting one week for 1.14,
thanks everyone.
