Given that you run a specific set of operations, it is plausible that
you're not hitting any of the bugs - or not being *visibly* impacted
by some of them.  (For example, one bug that "everyone" sees but
probably doesn't care about, #410145: "make" will print the "unfake"
directory when it enters or leaves a subdirectory.  That's "scary but
harmless"... but it turns out that bash uses the same code path and
there are circumstances where things will just break.)

I certainly have seen lots of packages build correctly with fakechroot
as-shipped - and these fixes should significantly raise that number.
