Bug#476184: ubuntu patch

There is a patch in ubuntu addressing this. It tries to unmount
repeatedly. I don't know how well that can work. Can't a mounted
filesystem be prevented from unmounting at all due to the desktop's file

Bug#483898: vim-scripts: lbdbq.vim returns a warning message when lbdbq outputs non-standard line

Package: vim-scripts
Version: 7.1.7
Severity: minor
Tags: patch

In the ldbdq.vim script, the  LbdbQuery(qstring) function returns:

	Error executing function LBDBCompleteFn..LbdbQuery:
	line    5:
	E684: out of bound index: 1
	Error executing function LBDBCompleteFn..LbdbQuery:
	line    5:
	E15: Invalid Espression: [ [fields[1], fields[0]] ]

This was caused  by bug #480356 , that made the "lbdbq: 25 matches" be on the second line instead of the first
one. Example:

	$lbdbq joe
	"our" variable $ignorant masks earlier declaration in same scope at /usr/lib/lbdb/mutt_ldap_query
line 53, <DATA> line 228.
	lbdbq: 25 matches

The error is generated in these two lines of the LbdbQuery function:

	let fields = split(line, "\t")
	let results += [ [fields[1], fields[0]] ]

There is no checking if fields[1] exists (i.e. len(fields)>1).

The error can be solved adding the check:

Sorry, I lost track of this bug.  I can confirm that the files have been
uninstalled properly a while ago, so this bug can be closed.

The thing is that just like Russ said, almost no one uploads new versions to
experimental first just for the sake of it being a new version. There are
of course some cases that's desired (e.g. major changes), but that's not
the common rule.

And adding extra enable-on-demand checks IMHO is not something that belongs
to lintian. But I'll better let the lintian maintainers speak for

I just wanted to suggest another possible way to achieve the same goal, with
higher (IMHO) chances to get added.

Bug#419018: Intending to orphan this package with an upload

As this bug, and all the other ones, have had no reply from the maintainer 
ever, I plan to address this bug, together with some others in an upload.

The upload would also change the maintainer to the QA group, thus orphaning 
the package.

If you still intend to maintain the package please reply as soon as possible, 
because by the next weekend I'll ask a sponsor to upload the package.

Bug#483461: [php-maint] Bug#483461: php5-cli: use_embedded_timezonedb.patch php5 patch causes segmentation faults when tzdata not installed

A somewhat convoluted upgrade from an old experimental checkout to  
dist-upgrade to unstable.  Unlike etch, tzdata doesn't seem to be  
required by much of anything in sid.
