Comment 3 Julien Nabet 2014-05-08 15:02:48 UTC
On pc Debian x86-64 with master sources updated today, I don't reproduce this.

However, with 4.2 sources updated some days ago, I could reproduce this.

bt from 4.2 sources update several days ago.

Perhaps it's ok with 4.2.X sources updated today. I'll try to find some time to launch a new build

I think it's the same bt but at least, I retrieved it from 4.2 updated yesterday.
