The same happens also to mailsync. To quote #685897 :

I could make mailsync build-depend on 8:2007f~dfsg-1, however I suspect,
that this libc-client version is also breaking other packages. Thus it
would maybe be better to fix the library.


I'm copying this to the maintainers of the other packages that depend on
libc-client (php5-imap, libmail-cclient-perl, prayer).

I think we should decide quickly, before we release wheezy with a broken
mailsync (or other libc-client based program).
