Well, following the thread at [0] doesn't implies that this is a
solid solution. It seems to be more a clobbling than a development.

I'll run that patches at my own but don't expect to get them
upstreamed or Debain packaged.

Debian X Strike Force, please consider to close this bug or push a
non-clobbling fix....

 Never make anything simple and efficient when a way
  can be found to make it complex and wonderful ;-)
