Bug Description

Specifying a `[file]` argument causes failure and the error message `giblib error: Saving to file [file] failed` to be display. Obviously this isn't helpful because it doesn't explain the reason and possible fix to the user. Please note that this isn't about the failure, but about the feedback.

This bug was fixed in the package scrot - 1.1-1

scrot (1.1-1) unstable; urgency=medium

  * New upstream version 1.1.
  * debian/copyright: added rights for upstream Jade Auer.
  * debian/patches/10_fix-distclean.patch: removed. The
    upstream fixed the source code. Thanks.
