...which reminds me: Putting the maemo packaging in
seemed like a good idea at the time, but I'm not sure any more: the same
packaging is actually fully functional in Debian Ubuntu and probably
other Debian-derivatives as well (and any small changes could be done
with patches).

I realize that there _may_ be people who use other than Debian-based
distributions, but I still think including a debian-directory in the repo might not be a bad idea. I can tell you that
keeping it in a separate repository has not been ideal...

Thanks for the report, Ian.

I had some trouble reproducing this, but there was a string that was not
 always terminated (which could trigger this). I've fixed that now and I
believe it works. Care to test?
