Tanks for your report

Debian-Release: 0.0.svn4064-3

Please, update your system.

I do not know from which server you got your debian package from but this version did not enter squeeze and there are no backports. Considering wheezy/sid your packages are quite outdated.

Anyway, for reporting bugs in debian packages please use the Debian bug tracker:

reportbug josm
