debian version works now but theres a lot of ubuntu changes to go through so it would need to be looked at by someone more familiar with the package but for the moment....

SevenMachines: I agree about this being the wrong time in the release cycle to be merging this package. The patch looks decent, but a couple of quick things.

Would you mind using a real name in the changelog?

It's a big help to future MOTUs working on the package if quilt patches have a descriptive header. The DEP3 standard is quite popular: http://dep.debian.net/deps/dep3/

sorry, missing dep3 was a result of doing it late in the evening.

Can this one maybe pushed to latest LTS (lucid) too? Lucid does suffer this one using a backported kernel.
