  The vcalendar memory leak could be interesting to add, if next
  Claws Mail version doesn't get released in time for Wheezy. Not sure
  about the Gnome shell ones (just entered unstable 3 weeks ago).

  Anyway I expect some version to be released in a not too distant
  future, don't you? :)

  Yep, that's the idea. And do the sync more often.

  I've already tried to explain before¹² that this is a some ad-hoc
  "standard", that Claws Mail is not a GNOME application but a desktop
  agnostic GTK+ based mailer, and hence I'm sticking to default
  upstream on the Debian package. I guess nobody took care of writing
  this on the patch info...

  The Debian package uses upstream desktop file since 3.7.10-1, which
  IIRC already contains this, and the debian/claws-mail.desktop was
  removed. I guess you should remove it from Ubuntu's debian dir too
  (and any related patch).
