Subject: gtkhtml3.14: URLs with ampersand ("&") don't work
Package: gtkhtml3.14
Version: 3.16.1-1
Severity: normal

In evolution, when I receive URL from Ebay, Lidl, or a message with an
URL with ampersand in it, I need to remove the "amp;" in "&" each
time... This is particularly annoying bug which is fixed in a more
recent package. I know that there's a new version in unstable. But it
seems this new version could not come in lenny because of deps
 show that glib2.0 and pango1.0 is in freeze). So perhaps, packaging the
version 3.16.2 just to go for lenny could be nice.

For the record more information are in this News report of the package :
