slh already said everything you should know about apt-listbugs: http://aptosid.com/index.php?name=PNphp ... 1971#11971

I would recommend to remove it, too. You need to be experienced to understand these bugreports otherwise it just generates a fuzzy false safety feeling. Or a lot of question marks in your head. Usually both.

The bug itself: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=607267
Yeah, it wasn't serious enough to delay squeeze-release, so it is properly not that serious. It effects you only if you copy with scp to file to another computer who doesn't have enough storage to store the file. Then it is really serious (or grave in debian-terms), so just ensure that you copy only files which fit into the place you want to copy it too and everything will be fine, so depending on your copy-behavior this is serious or minor. Usually the later, at least that is the case for me.
