No, that is in the hands of the release team. And 2.4.5 is waiting in unstable
and would be used by any future cmake-using packages.

Note that the Debian diff to cmake 2.4.4 does address these issues:
+  * Have FindMPEG2 look in paths used in Debian (Closes: #391831)
+  * Make FindQt4 more reliable (Closes: #392473)

A bug has been filed. #414188
Note that it has already been downgraded, since 2.4.4-1 seems to function
for Debian systems, as 16 other Debian packages build with it.

Any finding of your test should go to 414188 at bugs.debian.org.
