Bug#808839: Info received (fop: Exception java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: URI is not hierarchical)

I finally took some time to debug this and it seems the problem may be 
related to libjlatexmath-fop-java.

In my setup I use LaTeX formatting from a docbook file to produce a PDF
file with fop and jlatexmath fop plugin.
My invocation of fop is prefixed by:

When I remove this environment variable my document is generated without
errors (even though the LaTeX code is obviously not rendered)
It seems that the last update of the libjlatexmath-fop-java plugin is 
quite old and in between fop was upgraded to version 2.0

Could the issue be coming from the jlatexmath plugin not working with 
new fop version?

Bug#814265: Incorrect hyphen.tex path

Package: html2ps
Version: 1.0b7-1
Severity: normal


/etc/html2psrc refers to
/usr/share/texmf-texlive/tex/generic/hyphen/hyphen.tex but this file
doesn’t exist (anymore?). texlive-base (suggested by this package)
provides /usr/share/texlive/texmf-dist/tex/generic/hyphen/hyphen.tex so
this may just need an update.

Bug#810947: kwin-x11: iceweasel locks up when multiple windows restored

Package: kwin-x11
Version: 4:5.4.3-1.1
Followup-For: Bug #810947

Dear Maintainer,

*** Reporter, please consider answering these questions, where appropriate ***

   * What led up to the situation?

With current kernel and libraries, first time to attempt restoring
iceweasel can still lock up when restoring multiple windows, but after doing
a kill -9 on the locked up kwin_x11 process, allowing iceweasel to restore
windows and shutting things down cleanly, logging out and doing an init 1
to even restart dbus, the next login and iceweasel session restore works 
without any lock-up. 

   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or

I attempted upgrading kwin-x11 to 4:5.5.4-2 but that would lock up right
at the start before attempting to run any programs like iceweasel or konsole.
(See attached back-trace).

   * What was the outcome of this action?
   * What outcome did you expect instead?

Bug#814260: libsnappy1_1.1.2-3 doesn't support multi-arch (amd64+i386) in jessie 8.3

Package: libsnappy1
Version: 1.1.2-3
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,
I installed on my system some programs using also some unofficial repos
(including and and
after an upgrade got a conflict between wine-devel and KDE (apt tried to
uninstall KDE if I tried to reinstall wine-devel). I found that the problem was
due libsnappy1_1.1.2-3_i386.deb (which be needed by 32-bit part of unstable
wine) conflicted with libsnappy1_1.1.2-3_amd64.deb. When I installed manually
libsnappy1_1.1.3-1_amd64.deb and libsnappy1_1.1.3-1_i386.deb (that was
possible, unlike two 1.1.2-3) the problem was solved on my computer (maybe,
until next update of these packages?).

Bug#814259: maybe: port to python3

Package: maybe
Version: 0.3.0-1
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch


Why not package this as a Python3 application ?

The Python2 -> 3 migration is slowly moving with
a lot of tangled depedencies;
but as for this one Python3 is already supported
by upstream; it should be straightforward.

Patch attached

Bug#782077: Bug seems not fixed.

I am running a Dell E6530 with Debian unstable, lightdm (1.16.6-1) and
systemd (228-6).

If I don't keep the lid open when docked, then the system goes to sleep
before I can log in.
