Are we talking about the library's soname, or the debian package name? 
I compared the 1.1.1 release with 1.0.4, which I think was the last 
stable version. The version-info increments acceptably between the two 
releases, from 0:1:0 to 2:1:1. Obviously revision hasn't always been 
incremented properly, at the very least, and I don't know when we went 
throught current=1.

Is the debian mismatch based on a release between these too? Should 
flac-1.1.1 release have been 2:1:0? In either case, it seems rebuilding 
all the packages against the 1.1.1 library should resolve the issue?

I don't know C++ well enough to evaluate ABI compatibility. The version-
info for libOggFLAC++ moved from 0:1:0 to 1:1:1 between 1.0.4 and 1.1.1.

Can someone else comment on this?
