Thanks Ivo!
Yes I saw that unfortunately only AFTER I had sent the email. Won't
happen again.

... plus I was wondering if this could not be fixed in the stable
version as well (because for the unstable fix to become available for
stable users it will take a while).
But I am not sure what's the (bug fixing) policy there for Debian.
Maybe only security bugs are fixed for stable ?

In any case:
I will be more careful with reopening a bug (or simply NOT do it)!
