** Attachment added: "spe_0.8.2a+repack-1ubuntu0.7.10.debdiff"

** Description changed:

  Binary package hint: spe
  SRU request:
  1) This bugs happens as spe (0.8.2a+repack-1) requires python-wxgtk2.6 and fails with python-wxgtk2.8. When both python-wxgtk2.6 and python-wxgtk2.8 are installed, spe selects 2.8 instead of 2.6 and fails to start. (python-wxgtk2.8 is only available on feisty, gutsy and hardy.)
  2) A fix, which forces spe to select python-wxgtk2.6, has been already uploaded for the current development branch (hardy). Version uploaded is 0.8.2a+repack-1ubuntu1 and the debdiff used can be found at this link:
  3) A debdiff (0.8.2a+repack-1ubuntu0.7.10) for gutsy-proposed has been already prepared and can be found at 
- http://launchpadlibrarian.net/10904179/spe_0.8.2a%2Brepack-1ubuntu0.7.10.debdiff
+ http://launchpadlibrarian.net/11192605/spe_0.8.2a%2Brepack-1ubuntu0.7.10.debdiff
  As well as a debdiff (0.8.2a+repack-1ubuntu0.7.04) for feisty-proposed:
- http://launchpadlibrarian.net/10904178/spe_0.8.2a%2Brepack-1ubuntu0.7.04.debdiff
+ http://launchpadlibrarian.net/11192600/spe_0.8.2a%2Brepack-1ubuntu0.7.04.debdiff
  4) TEST CASE: to reproduce the bug, just follow this small steps:
  4a. apt-get install spe (gutsy package, 0.8.2a+repack-1)
  4b. open up your terminal and run "spe --debug"
  4c. you'll receive the output as reported below in the original log.
  Original Log:
  spe crash on launch
  using : python /usr/bin/spe --debug > debug.txt 2>&1
  i have :
  AttributeError: 'Throbber' object has no attribute '_fileName'
  at the end of debug.txt
