Attached is a patch for this.

Uncommenting the lines containing `LINE_ID' in tasks/socket-impl-gio.cc
will give you more helpful debugging info.

I'm going to plead ignorance here. Would it be better for the spec file
to say that 0.9x supercedes older installed versions? I don't see much
point in keeping both versions around, at least after the crasher bugs
are shaken out of 0.9x.

Users can move newsrc files over by hand, but since that's the _only_
overlap between the two versions' data formats, there's not much to be
gained from automating it.
