Yes, though fortunately not critical ones. It has to do with some deprecated glib functions that ubuntu's gcc decided to error out on. The changes are just replacing those deprecated functions with the what is the currently accepted code. Someone had actually fixed most of them last spring, there were just a couple that he'd missed. It's not likely to cause too much trouble with bug reporting.
