Ok ... thx for your answers to this! 

Beside building and testing my packages in a proper way (pbuilder and clean 
installations in vmware - because of my packgage beeing a graphical one, I 
decided to use a graphical system for testing, not chroot) I just mis-used 
lintian ;(
So my question came up cause of this unproper usage, was my fault and is 
therfore answered.
