Justification: renders package unusable
The XFCE4 terminal emulator suddenly ceased to work when I upgraded to

This problem occurs on my work desktop PC, where the details below come
from. It also occurs on my home desktop PC (running Debian squeeze, all
packages up-to-date) and on my laptop running Xubuntu (the problem

All three machines happen to have Intel graphics chipsets of various
kinds and all run X with xserver-xorg-video-intel.
