Package: libldb1
Version: 1:1.1.17-1~bpo70+1
Severity: critical
Justification: breaks unrelated software

Dear Maintainer,

originally looking for a Sogo update, I installed samba from wheezy backports, 
which includes the current libldb1 (i.e. 1.1.17).

Unfortunately, the version handling of libldb1 is critical and there are packages
in stock wheezy that also depend on libldb1 and require 1.1.6 instead of 1.1.17 to work 

In my case, the package affected is sssd (not sure about other packages). sssd does not start up 
with the libldb1 backport being installed and there is also no sssd (back)port available working with
the libldb1 1.1.17. As a result, regular users cannot log into the system any more (as that is managed 
through sssd).

I am not sure about how to resolve this best. One idea would be to offer backports / recompiled versions of 
the affected packages (sssd, not sure about others) through backports and the dependency system? 

Thanks for any support on this issue.
