A testcase that fails sometimes is not good.
This is a testcase-only fix that is already in unstable,
that fixes sporadic build failures.
I would suggest to upload 1.1-4+deb8u2 (created on top of 1.1-4+deb8u1)
with 51-sigpipe-test.diff added to jessie, but Julien (or any other SRM)
should confirm that.
