Hi, I added a bug watch to the Debian bug. This is done by clicking on "also affects distribution" right above the bug description, selecting Debian and pasting the URL.

Since this package has some Ubuntu-specific changes, it will need to be manually merged after it appears in Debian.

thanks for your support! I'd like to nominate this package for Oneiric (but have no rights to do so). This package seems to have arrived in SID (unstable)

This bug was fixed in the package ntfs-3g - 1:2011.4.12AR.4-2ubuntu1

ntfs-3g (1:2011.4.12AR.4-2ubuntu1) oneiric; urgency=low

  * Resynchronise with Debian (LP: #788368). Remaining changes:
    - Add a ntfs-3g-udeb package.

      /run support.
    - Accept "syncio" mount option (a synonym for "sync") for compatibility
      with older versions of Ubuntu.

ntfs-3g (1:2011.4.12AR.4-2) unstable; urgency=low

ntfs-3g (1:2011.4.12AR.3-2) unstable; urgency=low

  * Removing libntfs-3g library package and folding it into ntfs-3g
    itself as there's not much point in micro-packaging here (nobody
    except ntfs-3g uses the shlib anyway, upstream bumps soname with
    almost every release and going through NEW is annoying).
  * Renaming libntfs-3g-dev to ntfs-3g-dev for consistency.
