Main menu at Debian does not execute

Recently I upgraded my Debian and main menu does not run anymore. So, from command line I tried to execute alacarte.

$ alacarte

And got exception:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/alacarte", line 23, in 
    from Alacarte.MainWindow import MainWindow
  File "/usr/share/alacarte/Alacarte/MainWindow.py", line 32, in 
    from Alacarte.MenuEditor import MenuEditor
  File "/usr/share/alacarte/Alacarte/MenuEditor.py", line 23, in 
    from Alacarte import util
  File "/usr/share/alacarte/Alacarte/util.py", line 25, in 
    from gi._glib import GError

Seems like module got missing, removed or installation broken. As it is the first time (I am running multiple virtualbox instances on multiple computers) it seems like common problem.

I found that it is fixed on Ubuntu: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/alacarte/+bug/1086369

I also found it at debian bug list:

http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=705387

So, solution was easy enough- just re installed alacarte:

$ sudo apt-get install alacarte
