Seems so. But then again, you shouldn't be using drivers and packages  
built directly from git.fd.o if you don't want to deal with such  
things or contribute code or patches back. As you may have read in  
this thread, Ubuntu has "greedy" as the default, so use that distro.

I have to agree with Stephane, I'd rather have it fixed then use a workaround.
