Since Lenny is frozen, by now we should not upload a new release,
either. I backported the upstream fix from CVS, and created a branch off
1.5.1-1 in pkg-ruby-extras team's repository

I tested with two applications that depend on libcairo-ruby1.8, packages
treil and edit-json (this one depends indirectly on libcairo-ruby1.8
through libgtk2-ruby1.8), and they seemed to work ok. The script that
demonstrated the problem also run ok, despite the infinite loop. ;)

Lucas, could you please check the package? It's here:
