The good news is that Debian backports now has 4.0.7 (I've just
uploaded 4.0.7-4~bpo60+1 which has a few extra fixes compared to
4.0.7-2~bpo60+1). The bad news is that since Debian is in freeze,
4.0.9 or above won't be hitting Debian any time soon (except possibly
experimental, if someone asks nicely :)

However, I do encourage people who are using the Debian packages to
report bugs that affect them to the BTS even if they are fixed in newer
upstream releases; if they seem serious enough, it's still possible
to fix important bugs in Debian before the release.
