Isn't that the bug where you have to
$ LANG= dpkg-buildpackage
$ LANG= make-kpkg (just been bitten again by this one)
because the script in question *STILL* tests for error message text
instead of error number?
If that's the one, then I'd say that yes, this *is* release critical. It's
also easy to fix; just evaluate $! in numerical context instead of string
context and it gives the error number.
