program for representing sounds visually, accesses user-controlled
configuration and mixer files with elevated privileges.  Thus, it is
possible to read arbitrary files.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 2.1-2.1woody3.

For the testing (sarge) and unstable (sid) distribution this problem
does not exist since synaesthesia is not installed setuid root
