Unfortunately, version information seems to be (at least at first
glance, I'm not used to launchpad at all):
  Oneiric 	Confirmed
  Precise 	Fix Released

I think we'd greatly appreciate a Debian bug with appropriate
“found”/“fixed” information, which would help everyone track down the
status of this bug in Debian. Usually the first thing to do is to get
the patch in unstable if the version in unstable is affected, and only
after that, think about performing a stable update.

I guess Gnome maintainers will take it from here once a proper bug is
opened in the Debian BTS.

Thanks already!
