Thanks for uploading the fix for this bug report to -proposed. However, when reviewing the package in -proposed and the details of this bug report I noticed that the bug description is missing information required for the SRU process. You can find full details at but essentially this bug is missing some of the following: a statement of impact, a test case and details regarding the regression potential. Thanks in advance!
