libsdl2 (1.3 was renamed to 2) is now packaged in Debian and
apparently about to see the official release after many years waiting.
 I don't know if Neverball will work against it, but perhaps you can
give it a try.

Backporting a fix doesn't look likely, SDL2 accumulated many years of
changes over the 1.2 API.  If upstream didn't backport it in the
stable releases is probably for a reason.  Although if somebody can
create a patch for it, we will look into incorporating it.
