Thanks for the notice on 2.9.  Does this suggest that this is better 
taken up with Debian maintainers ?  Not wanting to start a flame war, 
just a genuine query.  If it's my distro's issue, then I'll take it back 
there, otherwise they may not know.  Testing is a little bouncy right 
now, so it could well already be on their todo list.

Thanks for the prompt comeback.
