Strangely, I came across this in the Debian BTS when investigating whether to sync gpaint (0.3.3-2.1) to clear up a FTBFS.

So this patch has been committed to some Netbook Remix PPA? Is that correct? It's been forwarded upstream and to Debian, but not actually uploaded to Ubuntu apparently. Is it appropriate for Ubuntu? Seems like it is. I can reproduce the bug. It was never even reported against the Ubuntu package.

Is this a common practice? Are there other patches out there that should get pushed back to Ubuntu? Seems like it would be simpler to push it to all of Ubuntu and not maintain another version specific to UNR....

Anyways, I can confirm that this problem exists in Karmic, and that the patch fixes it. Debdiffs attached adds this patch as well as merges the new Debian revision fixing the FTBFS as well.

It's not supposed to be common practice. I think this is back when UNR used its own repo? This patch may have slipped through the cracks.
