Joshua, you can vote against this update in Bodhi:


Mike already has, so if you vote, it will hit -2; if one other person is
seeing this and votes against the update there, it will be removed from
the updates repository.

I notice this got no testing between 24th Feb (when it was pushed to
updates-testing) and 2nd March (when it was pushed to stable) :(. Do we
not have many people here testing out updates-testing packages?
Unfortunately I'm not as I'm running Rawhide on my main system...
