001-bug728142_many_slots.patch Add support for large autochangers For large autochangers, the buffer needed for the ReadElementStatus call can
be too large. This patch works around this by doing multiple smaller calls.
The maximum value of 10000 seems to be OK for this. Based on tests, the
maximum value seems to be between 24000 and 25000, but this might
depend on the autochanger.
This patch is based on the changes by Wayne Keseberg <>

006-fix-quotation-in-manpage Fix manpage quotation found by lintian
An apostrophe at the beginning of the line is a command for (g)roff,
so it must be either escaped or moved away from the beginning of the
line to have a real apostrophe. The sequence \' doesn't stand for an
apostrophe, however, but an acute accent. There are escaped sequences
for an apostrophe, but they don't seem to be portable. Therefore, the
easiest solution is to move the apostrophe away from the beginning of
the line.
