Well, I'm not in the position to insist on anything.  I prefer the fix
to be ABI-compatible, otherwise we'll have to rebuild again +50
packages on 14 architectures, delaying the transition even more.

But if you want the fix included in 0.18.1, it has to be
ABI-compatible with 0.18.0 according to the GNUstep release policy...

I confirm this trick works, so I'm going to apply it as
Debian-specific patch.  Thanks!

Perhaps this is a strong indication that GModel should be completely
deprecated in 0.20.
