Package: arduino
Version: 2:1.0.5+dfsg2-4.1
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,
when running arduino i get this error:

java.lang.NullPointerException thrown while loading

both on the shell and in the black area of the GUI "serial port" item
on menu|"tools" is grayed out. So while I can still type and compile
code but I can't upload it to any board. This happens on the very outdate
version (1.0.5) present in sid while the newer - but stil outdated -
version in experimental doesn't run at all. So right now arduino is not
usable in Debian.

Is there some workaround|hack to temporary fix that? I hate having to 
run Windows to get around this kind of issues.
