The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 1:1.0.0-1ubuntu1.5 (for Ubuntu 4.10) and 1:1.1.4-1ubuntu4.2
(for Ubuntu 5.04). In general, a standard system upgrade is
sufficient to effect the necessary changes.

could crash the Gaim client of an arbitrary Yahoo IM member.
