Can you forward the patch to Debian and Upstream?

Also... does this patch come from somewhere? It'd be nice to document it with https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuDevelopment/PatchTaggingGuidelines

Daniel Holbach (dholbach) wrote :

This is the diff between our version and the current upstream version.

Maybe use this instead?
- if (val[0]) {
+ if (val && val[0]) {

Also: can you make use of https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuDevelopment/PatchTaggingGuidelines or at least document that the bug is fixed upstream and the patch dropped when we move to the new upstream version?

Tagged the patch and forwarded it to Debian.
Upstream already has the fix in svn.
