Without being a bugscan/britney hacker, I think what's happening it's
that #410838 is being counted precisely because the fixed version is not
built on mips. Once it's built there, the package will no longer be
considered buggy.

Many build failures due to uninstallable stuff has been queuing up
lately. I've gone over a lot of them in the past days, but darcs-buildpackage
did not show in my list of otherwise-ready packages, precisely because
it was not built on mipsel. Heh.

I'll ask for a retry.
