Again(!) I remark that you put a notice about a potential root exploit
somewhere near line 100 or so instead as a big fat "SECURITY: ..."
warning on top of the changelog.
Although this time it's at least the first entry in the bugs section,
I propose you to change that in future as admins and especially package
maintainers should see such things at the first glance.
