dpkg-genchanges gets confused with version numbers

When building a source package, where the binary packages get their
own version numbers, dpkg-genchanges does not get the correct version
number. If you look at the package python-rng, then it get's its own
version number 1.1-11.1. It is correctly built as 

dh_gencontrol -ppython-rng -u-v1.1-11.1 
dh_builddeb -a
dpkg-deb: building package `python-rng' in `../python-rng_1.1-11.1_i386.deb'.

But then:

dpkg-genchanges -sa
dpkg-genchanges: including full source code in upload
dpkg-genchanges: failure: cannot open upload file ../python-rng_11-11.1_i386.deb for reading: No such file or directory

And 11-11.1 exactly is the version number of the source package. At
least in June this setup worked fine for me.

You can find the source package and build log at

Thanks for any hints ...
