Bug Description

The pcre2-version-update.patch in disco should not be necessary anymore and should be removed, since pcre2 has been accepted in main [0] and vte has been build with pcre2 support [1]. Moreover, the pcre2 backport in vte caused various confusion [2] and other issues [3].

Why do you think the patch is still in tilix in Ubuntu 19.04?

I believe I dropped the patch in January when I prepared 1.8.9-1.

The patch itself is misleadingly still present inside tilix_1.8.9-1build1.debian.tar.xz. It's not mentioned in 'series' though, which I believe means it's not applied? This might have confused OP and me as well.
