Indeed, KiBi reported said problem over IRC a few hours before you.
The cause is a that debhelper stopped giving an explicit name to
dpkg-gencontrol for the ddebs. Unfortunately, dpkg-gencontrol will add
the "wrong" name to debian/files.
Guillem already devised a short patch for dpkg-gencontrol, which I
will be testing soon.
