   Dec 2011-SP1 bugfix release
   Build Environment   * Fixed some of the package names for Debian/Ubuntu.
                         Packages for libraries should contain the major
                         number of the library version number. This was not
                         always the case.
                       * On Debian and Ubuntu, install Python modules in
                         dist-packages instead of site-packages. This fixed
                         bug 2997.
   SQL                 * Fixed a crash that happened at the end of a database
                         upgrade to the Dec2011 database scheme. The crash
                         happened during cleanup after the database was
                         upgraded, so it was merely inconvenient.
                       * Stripped off implementation-specific parts from
                         error messages before they get presented to the
                         user.
   Java Module         * Fixed bug in DatabaseMetaData.getSchemas() method
                         that caused an SQL error when called with catalog
                         and schema argument.
                       * Resolved a bug where JDBC and Control connections
                         could terminate abruptly with 'Connection closed'
                         messages
   MonetDB5 Server     * Fixed potential crash by dealing better with
                         non-standard types.
   Merovingian         * Fixed a bug in the multiplex-funnel where certain
                         clients would abort on responses for update queries.
                       * Fixed problem where version and mserver properties
                         for monetdbd were not always successfully retrieved.
                         Bug #2982.
                       * Fixed problem where shutdown of monetdbd would lead
                         to shutting down database 'control' which does not
                         exist. Bug #2983.
                       * Fixed issue causing (harmless) 'error reading from
                         control channel' messages. Bug #2984.
                       * Resolved problem where remote start/stop/etc.
                         commands with monetdb would report error 'OK'. Bug
                         #2984.
