  update-apt-xapian-index-dbus fails because of wrong import

Status in apt-xapian-index package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  terminates with an error and does not update the index.

  Mai 09 15:42:10 bear dbus[1017]: [system] Activating service name='org.debian.AptXapianIndex' (using servicehelper)
  Mai 09 15:42:10 bear org.debian.AptXapianIndex[1017]: Failed to import 'No module named 'glib'', can not use dbus
  Mai 09 15:42:11 bear dbus[1017]: [system] Activated service 'org.debian.AptXapianIndex' failed: Launch helper exited with unknown return code 1

  The correct import should be:

      from gi.repository import GLib as glib
      from gi.repository import GObject as gobject
