This bug was fixed in the package chm2pdf - 0.9.1-0ubuntu3

---------------
chm2pdf (0.9.1-0ubuntu3) intrepid; urgency=low

  [Raphael Geissert]
  * debian/control, debian/rules: use quilt to manage patches
  * insecure_temp_dirs.diff (Closes: #501959):
    - Don't use static names to create temp dirs.
    - Commented out --dontextract from usage info, as it is not very useful now
  * bashisms.diff: fix bashism in chm2pdf (Closes: #502044).

  [Steve Stalcup]
  * A few bug fixes (LP: #267496)
  * debian/control:
    - update-maintainer
    - added Homepage field
