Never mind. I didn't look at them too closely, but it seems to be my
error now. When I thought the thing didn't work, I purged the package;
then the error mails started to appear -- but I thought they appeared
before that, because there were so many of them, and I had been
working on 'the new debbugs' for half an hour or so.
When looking at it more closely, the error was that some binary wasn't
found. Obviously, since I just uninstalled it, and the cronjob didn't
check for that. Which is not your fault either; the cronjobs are in
the debbugs user's crontab, and I placed them there manually.
