scim-chewing: user database file can be corrupted, which render the whole package useless
Nominated for Dapper by Wouter Stomp
The version of scim-chewing in dapper, 0.2.1, has a bug that can cause the user's database file be corrupted when scim exits abnormally. Once the database file is corrupted, the user can not use scim-chewing anymore.
This bug is fixed in scim-chewing 0.3.1, but the bugfix can't be easily backported to 0.2.1, as it's a rewrite of the database-handling code.
Therefore this bug should have been fixed in edgy (edgy has scim-chewing 0.3.1-1ubuntu3), and affects dapper only.
The Debian maintainer of scim-chewing suggests backporting version 0.3.1 to dapper.
