coreutils (8.13-3ubuntu3.2) precise-proposed; urgency=low

  * Backport upstream patch to avoid data-corrupting free-memory-read in
    cp/mv/install when dealing with a very fragmented and sparse input file
    on certain filesystems (LP: #1073514).
  * Build-depend on valgrind (except on armhf, where it breaks) in order to
    be able to run the test for the above fix.
  * Fix 99_sort_-u_data_loss.dpatch so that the added test is actually run.
  * Backport require_valgrind_ so that tests work better.
  * Make valgrind failures non-fatal; we don't have sufficiently accurate
    suppressions for linker startup issues on all architectures.  However,
    do still run those tests and check for corrupted output.
