Hello,

After changing HDD I have run into this same problem in Wheezy.

I have disconnected this bug from 670046 since the other bug is actually
a different issue.

Just as before, the patch already provided in 2012 is working correctly
and is trivial.

I already have a locally rebuilt package for wheezy which fixes the issue
by just adding netcat-traditional as a build dependency and everything
works without issues.


For your conveninece I attached the updated patch and the patch I applied
over the unstable version to backport xfce4-sensors-plugin to wheezy.
