Ok, based on available data, this package still FTBFS randomly, so I'm
raising the severity to serious again.
Since there is a new upstream release, maybe it does not make much
sense to try to debug this in the current version.
So I suggest the maintainer to disable the tests (trivial but untested
patch attached) for this release and reenable them for the next
I don't use this package myself, and it is not my intention or desire
to see it autoremoved for the sake of removing it.
Everything I ask is that it builds ok, so if anybody reading this
wants to see this package in stretch in its current form please consider
contacting the maintainer and/or disabling the tests in a NMU.
Upstream is willing to help here, but if the maintainer seems to be MIA,
there is not much else we can do.
