First of all; the .o files should not be in the tree. I'll have to take a
look at clean to see why they are still there.
Second: this bug should be against dpkg-source, as this is the culprit
that built the "malformed patch" in the first place. Or maybe patch/diff.
Let me see if I can fix this instance at my end.
