We are not patching to 2.4.3. The cyrus package in 
is 2.4.17-2, that is upstream 2.4.17 and the 2rd release (a.k.a. 
debian_version) of it.

In binary-amd64 and binary-i386 we also have a 2.4.17-3 package. it was built 
by Paul and he probably forgot to upload the source package. But the difference 
between the two packages is pretty minor, see
