I did not really find a package which could add a dependency to h-d-m,
and in fact h-d-m was separated out because it is not really needed
for users (just for debugging purposes), so it should be
uninstallable. My suggestion is to just add it to the ShipSeed.

As discussed on IRC, I uploaded version -0ubuntu2, which worked on
your system. Fortunately it also still works on mine :-) (the old one
did, too). Folks, pleeeease test this! These Gnome APIs are not
documented, it took me several hours to get this working. If anybody
else encounters a crash with the new version, I will revert to just
calling pumount for the device.
