through its setgid installation.


The oldstable distribution (lenny) is not affected by this problem,
it does not include tmux.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.3-2+squeeze1.

For the testing distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.4-6.

For the testing distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
