The solution to that bug is packaging a new upstream version, in my
opinion. dgrift and bigon have worked on doing that and I have it on my
todo-list to put those bits into a package which can go into
experimental (where it can mature a bit to then get uploaded into
unstable to migrate back to testing). I haven't had time to do that
last week, but I plan to do it this weekend.

If you want to help that effort, you could install one of the
preliminary packages of bigon[1] and report any problems you still
encounter. (We would then try and solve those problems upstream and
package the newer upstream snapshot).
