I am not sure how the process works either.

One thing you could do is chase this upstream to the Debian maintainer who added the broken patch, which Ubuntu then inherited. If you look at my patch it is actually patching *another* patch which was added and maintained by Debian to fix a few problems.

It should be fixed there anyway (I had assumed a developer here would propagate this upstream to Debian) and if it is then it will probably be easier to get Ubuntu to adopt the patch.
