lintian bug? "could not unpack to the desired level"

Follows the output of a "lintian -d" on a *.dsc file.

I get the same behaviour on all *.dsc file on which I'm trying,
otherwise I get no problem in using lintian on *.deb packages.

I also straced the lintian process and noticed that the "No such file or
directory" came from a lintian-status file looked for in /tmp, probably
the lintian temp dir in which it unpack the source file.

Is this supposed to be a lintian bug?
Anyway I found no mention of it in the BTS ...
