Normally packages are compiled with -O2 -g and then dh_strip handles
stripping to debian policy (removing the comment section too and
such). Most often this bug is caused by the package installation
itself calling strip, eg. with install -s.
So this is just a heads up that:
. the upstream package's strip may not strip the comment section or
other things Debian wants stripped;
. calling with nostrip should should include full -g debugging
