After some investigations, I have realised that this is an issue related
to how tar deals with symlinks (see #255067, #329843). These problems
would apparently appear if tar terminates abnormally or is interrupted
before it has finished "converting" the links.

Does this look like a bug in pbuilder, or rather in tar? Since tar seems
to have had issues of late, should I wait for a while before filling a
bug report?

Cheers, Thibaut.
