Closes: 447026 628654 640477 657965
 xbindkeys (1.8.6-1) unstable; urgency=medium
   * New upstream version
     - Bug fix: Do not grab keysym not mapped on keyboard.
       Prevent a AnyKey grab, this should (Closes: #447026)
   * Bug fix: "New release blocks seahorse"  (Closes: #628654).
     We now put the autostart script elsewhere and place a file in
     /etc/xdg/autostart. In the common Desktop Environments this should
     have xbindkeys still start automatically, but without the problems the
     old way of using /etc/X11/Xsession.d gave us.
     Users whose environment does not make use of /etc/xdg/autostart do
     need to manually start xbindkeys, either by just running it from their
     xsession or by executing /usr/bin/xbindkeys_autostart
   * Bug fix: "Please update homepage in man page", thanks to Mathieu
     Malaterre (Closes: #640477).
   * Bug fix: "[xbindkeys] xbindkeys defaults file should only be
     examples", thanks to Dean Evans (Closes: #657965).
   * Update guile version
