It is.  The fix is published in -updates for Hardy, Intrepid, Jaunty, and
Karmic (Dapper was not affected).  The backport in hardy-backports is also
fixed.  It's done all the way around.

Thank you to those who helped with fixing and testing.  Getting fixed
uploaded, tested, and released for 5 releases (I fixed Lucid too) in two
days is pretty good I think.
