Let's get this fixed upstream first.

Hi Vibhav

Thanks for the patch for precise.

I really thing that we should wait for this to trickle in from upstream rather than maintaining a patch in Ubuntu as it only pertains to a typo in the man page rather than missing options or suchlike.

Un-subscribing ubuntu-sponsors for the time being - lets hope upstream release 1.60 in time to close this bug for Ubuntu Q!

Cheers

James
