Ever since backports moved to ftp-master -sa has been unnecessary. As
you've found out, it can even go wrong when you upload the same
upstream version multiples times at once, since only one copy of the
file will exist in the queue, and the first .changes to be processed
will end up removing it from the queue and breaking the rest. So don't
bother :) it's only needed when uploading to a different dak instance
for the first time, like security-master.
