The fix for #613624 (upstream #7777) looks fine; thanks.

Would it be possible to have a debdiff against the current
proposed-updates package which includes the combined proposed changes
for the printing related bugs?  From a quick look through the separated
patches, it looks like some of them modify parts of the code touched by
earlier patches.  Is all of that set of patches really needed to fix the
issues?  It's not exactly small to review, given that today is the
advertised deadline for freezing 6.0.1. :-(
