Thank you for the bug report.  This has already been fixed in 5.4 in
Debian.  The newer 5.4 version will be in the next Debian release 7.0
code named Wheezy.  The release schedule for Wheezy is "soon" but
really it is very close to releasing.  All of us are anxious for it to
release.  At that time Stable will become Wheezy and this bug will no
longer exist in a Stable release.

The Stable release policy is that the only updates allowed for it are
those that fix security problems or severe problems.  A change such as
this would be out of scope for a Stable release according to the
stable release policy.  Therefore such a change can't go into
Squeeze.  It can only go into the next Debian Stable release.
