So true, I just experienced that with the build+upload of libarchive
3.0.4-4+wheezy3. But just for the record: I used a virtualbox VM with
fresh Wheezy installation because the build failed to build in my wheezy
schroot due to overlay fs stuff. The tests of libarchive create several
cpio and tar archives, unpack them and compare original and result. For
some reason, directories from a cpio archive have different device
numbers than the original directory due to some overlay fs[1].

Granted, I should better have used a clean wheezy schroot without
overlay foo instead of a Virtualbox VM. Will do so in future.

Thanks for doing that.
