The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 4.7-2.2ubuntu1.2 (for Ubuntu 5.04) or 4.7-2.2ubuntu2.1 (for
Ubuntu 5.10). In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to
effect the necessary changes.
USN-194-1 fixed a vulnerability in the 'texindex' program.
Unfortunately this update introduced a regression that caused the
program to abort when cleaning up temporary files (which are used with
extraordinarily large input files). The updated packages fix this.
