It didn't fail because of a problem with the buildd.  This is a package bug,
either in debhelper or in erlang; a log file is being created in the 'clean'
target, which runs as root, which subsequently can't be written to by the
'build' target.

You can fix this by not calling dh_testdir in your 'unpatch' target.
