1.5.2-9 is ready to be uploaded to debian archive.

Changelog since last upload (1.5.2-7) can be seen below my signature.

Source/binary packages are on
deb sid main
deb-src sid main

Package builds in pbuilder, has no new lintian warnings[1] and my tests show it
is OK.

Francesco, may I ask you to upload it in the archive? In case you rebuild the
source package (and .changes), please remember to use "-v1.5.2-7" to make
.changes get -8 and -9 changelogs and the "Closes: xyz" correctly.

Thanks in advance

[1] there is one lintian warning about unknown archtectures. This warning is
because type-handling is used to set package architectures and `type-handling
i386,amd64 any' returns much too optimistic set of architectures like
freebsd-i386, hurd-amd64 and similar. I am not yet certain if this is a bad thing.
