Package: libgraphics-colorobject-perl
Version: 0.5.0-4
Severity: normal

Perl 5.12.0 (currently in experimental) adds new uninitialized value
warnings for the lc* and uc* functions. One of these gets triggered by
Graphics::ColorObject, making libcolor-calc-perl fail its test suite
with perl_5.12.0-1 on amd64.

  $ perl -MGraphics::ColorObject -we 'Graphics::ColorObject->new_RGBhex("#ff0000")'
  Use of uninitialized value within @_ in lc at /usr/share/perl5/Graphics/ColorObject.pm line 1905.
