And fixed, even!

Done, thanks.

There's already a 0.4 package, and by design, packages never(!) get
rebuilt, so you'll need to change `Version:`, yes.
[ And currently, changes on the release branch are only pulled as
  a side-effect of pulling changes from the devel branch, so if you only
  commit to the release branch, the package may wait for a while until
  it's actually released.  :-(  ]
