Sorry, you're completely wrong.  The files installed in
/usr/lib/debug/usr/lib are detached symbol files, that are loaded
automatically by gdb -- *not* using LD_LIBRARY_PATH; and gdb looks for
detached symbol files by prepending /usr/lib/debug to the full path of the
original object file.  So there's no debhelper bug here.  If there are
detached symbol files that aren't working, that bug must lie elsewhere.
