OK, according to the AmaroK home page
1.3.7 is actually the latest version. I suppose the poster meant it would
be fixed in 1.3.8. It does seem, however, that there was an update of 1.3.7 to 1.3.7-1 in which the problem was fixed. It shows it here
at the debian package search... but their search/downloads are currently down due to "performance issues." I am unable to find another mirror for the .deb using Google.
So basically I'm back to my original question about finding an up-to-date repository or a .deb file, except I'm looking for 1.3.7-1 instead of 1.3.8.
