There is no debug info available externally, but you can rebuild the
package without stripping the debug symbols, which is done by passing
DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS="nostrip" to dpkg-buildpackage. Then you need to install
your custom package and follow Robby's instructions.

I would normally offer to rebuild them for you, but I really don't have
time with work at the moment. If you don't know how to rebuild the
package, don't hesitate to ask though.

I had a quick look, I'm afraid 1.2.5 might be a bit... outdated. I know
there are plans to automatically generate the -dbg packages at some point,
but no idea where the project is.
