Agg!  It's a serious breach of netiquette to spam-munge a reply-to
address in a mailing list posting. You're lucky I noticed, normally I
hit reply and respect the given address.

Anyhow, just to tell you that I'm aware of the bug you're
experiencing, but I never fixed it to my own satisfaction; I just
stopped building packages over NFS.  But you aren't hallucinating!

I'm slightly surprised there isn't an open bug about it that I can
see; I think the dpkg developers were aware of the problem, you could
try asking on debian-dpkg@lists
