Hi Salvatore,

Thanks for the notification.

IMO this isn't a grave issue. To be able to read the logs, someone would
need to have access to the server logs, meaning having privileged access
to the server.

I have never the less uploaded the upstream patch to Sid, and asked for
an unblock to the release team (with 5 days delay).
