Fixed upstream via https://github.com/brndnmtthws/conky/pull/692

It helps if you spell the name of the package correctly.

Thanks for fixing the ticket

I have incorporated upstream's fix into conky-1.11.0-2 currently in [testing].
However I cannot reproduce this issue so could you please confirm that this new package actually fixes it?
Cheers.
