Hi Olof,

For ubuntu 9.04, you will need stdeb 0.4 (the current git master
branch), which isn't released yet. I consider
http://github.com/astraw/stdeb/issues/#issue/10 to be blocking the
release of 0.4.

Stay tuned... with luck I'll find a workaround today. But I'm interested
in seeing the resolution to the debhelper bug (Debian bug #548392) so I
can account for that, too.
