Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better.

Is there an upstream release that fixes this issue, please, and if so, which version?

To fix the packages in Trusty, please follow the steps documented at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/StableReleaseUpdates#Procedure - we have to do this carefully to ensure that unaffected existing users are not regressed. In particular, we need an explanation of how this bug affects users in terms of use case, detailed steps to reproduce the problem that someone not familiar with this package can follow, and a discussion of how regressions are most likely to manifest as a result of these patches.

The listed commits are included since version 1.1.12 but no backports was made by upstream.

Thanks. Since this is then presumed fixed in Xenial which is at 1.1.12-0ubuntu3, I'm marking this bug as Fix Released. If you would like this fix backported to 14.04 then someone needs to prepare a backport as described in https://wiki.ubuntu.com/StableReleaseUpdates#Procedure. I'll leave a task open to reflect this.

So more than two years later and this is still not even assigned. Is 14.04 still in LTS or not? Do you know if the work on back-porting the fixes is ever going to start?

We switched to Xenial servers.

We do not need this backport anymore.

With only three users affected over almost three years, this was never a priority to fix. I did welcome volunteers, and none came forward.

Volunteers still welcome.
