The build process apparently simply continues when part of the process
fails (in violation of policy, I might add).

When "frozen" goes into "deepfreeze" and we get a chance to catch up,
_then_ you can get disturbed. For now we're pretty much at the whim
of what the primary maintainers upload into frozen.
AFA gmc is concerned, I'd suggest reporting a bug? I can't say anything
about it, as I don't believe I've built it before. You could dig up who
uploaded the alpha version and ask him about it.

Argh. So yet another message I sent was no longer relevant. This
is what I mean about following up on yourself! Having four threads
going on about the same basic subject isn't going to help us get
the alpha port stable...
