  I would not rush, let's isolate the few fixes needed and repush a whole
release in a week or two. There have been so many changes to 0.4.5 that
this kind of things is likely to happen ... more than once.
  Like 0.4.4 was a good release, fixing the obviour errors found in
0.4.3 first 10 days it's a clasical pattern :-)
  Distros with fast update cycles will push the patches, others should
monitor and look for 0.4.6 within 1-2 weeks.
  I will push the patch to Fedoras build,
