[collectd] Ohhhh jeeee, libgcrypt 1.4.1 + collectd 4.7.2

When using collectd 4.7.2 with libgcrypt 1.4.1 I'm getting an error message:
Ohhhh jeeee: operation is not possible without initialized secure memory

A collectd client dies with this message and SIGABRT as soon as it starts up, 
a server dies with this message and SIGABRT when it first receives an encrypted 
or signed network packet.

upgrading libgcrypt to 1.4.4 (squeeze) fixes the problem, but I'd prefer a 
library from the stable dist, especially one like gcrypt.
Anybody know what's going on here?
