You're right, it was reverted at revision 17781 (Bug #564928). For 
2.2.9, we'll now ship pristine upstream code. While I'm at it, is there 
any patches to apply to 2.2.9 that I don't know of?

AFAIU it will only make its way into Ubuntu 9.10 though, unless there's 
compeling reasons to do a backport - I don't use the program at the 
moment, so I couldn't tell. However, it should at least be possible to 
revert the broken patch for 2.2.6 in Ubuntu 8.10 and 9.04, now that the 
culprit is clear.

Thanks a lot, and thanks for the code,
