There is nothing to backport. David Shaw answered this exact same post last
Friday on both GnuPG-Users and GnuPG-Devel. To save you the /herculean/ effort
of actually reading either list, here again is his reply:
"The recent bug only applies to 1.4.8 and 2.0.8. It does not apply to
1.4.7 or any earlier version. There is no need to backport any
David is one of the principal developers of GnuPG. I'd trust his answer on this.
