Do you remove the modified files in your clean target ? (removed files will be
ignored when creating the diff but you need to list them explicitely in
debian/rules: this is what I do currently)
Or do you never build your package twice in a row (ie called dpkg-buildpackage
twice in the same directory) ?

The proposed solution avoid to explicitely list the modified files and
avoid a backup of the full source tree.
