No, it's a misunderstanding of how pbuilder is meant to work.

instead, try 
pbuilder build ../kleansweep_0.2.1-2.dsc

If that fails (and the dsc is there and sane and so forth) then there's
a bug.  pdebuild is documented to call the clean target before
chroot'ing, so just don't use that interface if you can't satisfy the
clean target requirements.
