Source: osm-gps-map
Version: 0.7.3
Justification: renders package unusable
Severity: grave

Dear Maintainer,

osm-gps-map doesn't show OSM tiles.  This is because of a policy change within 
OSM that requires clients to have a "true" User-Agent string.  osm-gps-map 
0.7.3 reports itself to be some form of Mozilla, which has been blocked by the 

The fix is to change line 146 of src/osm-gps-map-widget.c from:

#define USER_AGENT                  "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; 
en-US; rv: Gecko/20071127 Firefox/"

#define USER_AGENT                  "libosmgpsmap/0.7.3"

and recompile.  Unfortunately in compiling using standard dpkg-buildpkg scripts 
I run into other problems related to GIR, which I cannot resolve.

This problem shows up on Ubuntu 12.04 and onwards, which apparently use their 
own build of the Debian packages without any changes.
