Thanks for pointing this out (I actually missed the BR in LP, even
though I receive these bug reports).

Brynnen Owen mentioned this to us, recently, indeed.

The fix has been committed in the Debian package SVN. It will reach
Debian unstable, then Ubuntu, when we upload a new release.

Given that the fix is trivial but has important consequences for
anybody wanting to use the TDB2 backend, I'll ask for permission to
upload a fix in squeeze too.
