Yes, Mehdi Abaakouk reported this.....in bug #554170 that was
supposed to be fixed by this change.

But, thanks Mario for reporting as a separate bug report as it seems
we didn't pay enough attention to Mehdi's comment.

Nicolas, I think that this can be considered a regression and thus
worth being fixed for squeeze (anyway, the fix is trivial).

Two options:
- let -1 enter testing first (is the freeze exception in place?)
- upload -2 and ask to update the freeze exception
