The bug is in Debian, I filed it in debbugs deliberately because thats
where the bug originates. Its the upstream of the source code. (Or would
you rather not know about defects in your code?)

When I got your email I was happy because I thought you had checked and
found I was wrong. But actually, when I followed up and double checked
my results, it turns out you are incorrect; the version in Debian
suffers the same flaw and the bug report is valid. Now I'm annoyed
because I have had to track and validate this problem three times
(Ubuntu, Debian, filed (from laptop which has Ubuntu), and back to
Debian again to ascertain that your claim that it works fine is false).
Please don't claim that things work fine when they do not.
