    The update of libsdl1.2 released as DLA 1713-1 led to a regression, caused
    by an incomplete fix for CVE-2019-7637. This issue was known upstream and
    resulted, among others, in windows versions from libsdl1.2 failing to set

    For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
    1.2.15-10+deb8u2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libsdl1.2 packages.
