That bug will be marked fixed when proftpd is in karmic, there would
have to be a separate request for a backport after it was put in to
upgrade it in Jaunty. Because it is a sync request, there won't be
changes when it makes it into Ubuntu unless it fails to build from
source. You could download the Debian .deb and install it through gdebi.
It should work unless it requires dependencies that are only in karmic.

This is of course unsupported, but possible.
