Bug Description

The new python-imaging (1.1.7+2.0.0-1) now causes 'wsjt' (and surely other apps) to crash in Raring as shown below.
The problem does not happen with python-imaging (1.1.7-x) in Quantal or Debian unstable.

The problem has apparently been fixed in python-imaging upstream, per this thread, which links to the fix commit:

{wsjt crash with python-imaging (1.1.7+2.0.0-1)}:
