Oh, thank you for the correction.
Micha, is it possible that you called the debhelper scripts in the wrong
order? If, for example, you called dh_installchangelogs after
dh_compress, that could cause this problem.
Is the package where you encountered this problem publicly available? I'd
be happy to take a look at it and try to understand what happened.
