Note that while a rebuild might make the bug temporarily harmless,
this bug still needs proper fixing - your new autopkgtest is not
supposed to ever fail.

Hardcoding this part of the filename that is not part of the soname in 
the cmake file is simply wrong, and after a rebuild it would be expected
that the same bug would hit again with 1.4.1.

Setting to RC since this bug makes ros-robot-state-publisher FTBFS.

        of the darkness. There had been need of rain for many days.
       "Only a promise," Lao Er said.
