You think buildd's are cruel? Wait 'till you've seen something loop
infinitely, producing a buildd log file of 250MB. I'd say maintainers
are cruel :-P

Yes, I've actually seen that happen, on quickstep. I don't have a
reference, because buildd log files are sent to buildd.debian.org by
mail, and no sane mailserver allows such huge mails; and I don't
remember which package it was, because a) it's been a while, b) I
removed the log (250MB it way too much), and c) quickstep's hard disk
died in the mean time (so I couldn't check any other logs). It was only
because I hadn't seen a logfile from quickstep in a few days that I went
to investigate what it was doing, and noticed what was going on...
