Are you sure you are using the latest dpkg and dpkg-dev (220.127.116.11)? The
latest versions are in project/experimental, not in unstable.
According to dpkg's changelog, dpkg handles the new ldd output from 18.104.22.168

(I'm not sure if it is relevant, but just in case: I use debmake for my
packages). Probably you've done something like 'dch -v 11.23.1' instead of
'dch -v 11.23', and now the version number in debian/changelog is wrong.
Just editing this file should fix it then.
