$ sudo apt-get build-dep kq
$ apt-get source kq
$ cd kq-0.99.cvs20070319
$ wget -O- 'http://kqlives.cvs.sourceforge.net/viewvc/kqlives/KQ/scripts/estate.lua?r1=1.20&r2=1.21&view=patch' | sed -e 's/ _"/ "/' | (cd scripts && patch)
$ debchange --nmu --closes 537798
Describe the change, save the file, and exit the editor.
$ dpkg-buildpackage
$ sudo dpkg -i ../kq_*.deb ../kq-data_*.deb

That should do it; but I haven't played that far yet, so can't
say for sure.

Before this bug was fixed in the upstream CVS repository, many
strings in the Lua files were changed from "text" to _"text" so
that they can be translated to different languages.  The bug-fix
patch in the repository thus assumes that those underscores have
already been added.  The sed statement in the pipeline above
removes the underscores from the patch so that it can be applied
to the Debian source package that does not have the underscores.
