Package: haproxy
Version: 1.5.8-3+deb8u1~bpo70+1
Severity: important
Tags: upstream patch


as reported upstream here [1], haproxy < 1.5.10 will segfault on some
config files, that were ok with haproxy 1.4.* in wheezy.

Since that makes upgrading from wheezy to jessie "impossible"
and thus breaks machines I've marked this bug as important.

The workaround is also mentioned in the upstream thread which
consists in commenting out "disabled" proxy sections.

It'd be nice if you could provide an patched version for jessie,
that includes the fix (patch is also mentioned in the reply to [1]).

Thanks for maintaining haproxy!
