Bug Description

from a correspondence with troy rollo:

I asked:

epek, sorry for the late response. Is this something that still affects precise or later?

Answering my own question here.

If this indeed this was fixed in 1.0.21 then anything after oneiric should have this fix included. Thus, closing as fixed. Hardy and Lucid might still be affected but I am not sure about backporting. Feel free to supply a debdiff if you need support in lucid. If possible, an update to precise might be the wiser choice.
