[Python-modules-team] Bug#764018: [python-gd] rebuild broken

Package: python-gd
Version: 0.56+dfsg-5+b1
Severity: important

the +b1 rebuild seems totally broken.
Opening a random image file seg faults the interpreter:

Python 2.7.8 (default, Oct  2 2014, 12:01:32)
[GCC 4.9.1] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
 >>> import gd
 >>> a=gd.image(open("pic.jpg"),'jpg')
Segmentation fault

Downgrading to 0.56+dfsg-5 fixes this problem.

I guess this is not a bug in python-gd proper, but rather some python 
packaging helper scripts or so?
Or is it related to the jpeg-turbo transition and only temporary?

Please re-assign/re-title/re-classify accordingly.
