Bug#222760: dpkg-dev: Bogus warning about md5sum error

Package: dpkg-dev
Version: 1.9.21
Severity: important

Trying to build a package I get this error message reported from

   dpkg-source -b cbmlink-0.9.7
  dpkg-source: building cbmlink using existing cbmlink_0.9.7.orig.tar.gz
  dpkg-source: failure: md5sum gave bogus output `'

I can't see why, since md5sum works fine on the file if issued from the
command line:

  $ md5sum cbmlink_0.9.7.orig.tar.gz
  97df5639761cba3d021641d91c96028b  cbmlink_0.9.7.orig.tar.gz

The build directory is mounted over nfs, if that might have anything to do
with it? I did have some problems with unstable dpkg over nfs in bug 205011,
but that was a very different error message (I'm mounting from the same
server, though).
