Bug#413280: gnomemeeting: Format string vulnerabilities

Package: gnomemeeting
Severity: grave
Tags: security
Justification: user security hole

While fixed for Ekiga, GnomeMeeting is still affected by unauthenticated,
remote format string flaws. I'm attaching the patch I used for stable,
but the proper fix is probably to remove gnomemeeting from Etch:

Why is gnomemeeting still in etch along with the new name Ekiga?
We can't support an arbitrary number of old packages just because
they have been renamed at some point in time; our archive it already
way too big.
