one constructor does not initialize all variables used for file
descriptor numbers causing a segmentation fault later on in `FD_SET`.
Upstream pushed a commit [3] supposedly fixing this issue. It would be
great if that could be backported and the fixed version also uploaded
for Wheezy. I rebuild the package with the patch applied and it worked.

By the way, the attached patch to the upstream bug report [4] has a more
elaborate commit message.
