Thank you, I will add it to the Debian repository [1] in the next days.
I cannot do it right now because clisp was NMUed [2] and I need to
import those changes as well.

Is this fix considered necessary for the next Debian release, lenny?  In
that case, I must include it ASAP.  Please let me know.

Thx, bye,
