No problem, I'll forward your email to the bug. Anyway, as far as I
remember the problem is not in Debian but in
Trolltech-Nokia-Whatever_name_it_has_now : they have said they're not
going to provide any kind of support (even security support) to qt3,
so a distribution can not guarantee its safe shape.
