I've read /usr/doc/dpkg/programmer.html, but am not familiar with this 
dpkg procedure, though I'd like to learn.  I'm getting an object 
restriction error:

  localhost# dpkg-source -x wwwoffle_1.3a-1.dsc 
    dpkg-source: error: tarfile `./wwwoffle_1.3a.orig.tar.gz' contains 
    (wwwoffle-1.3a/) not in expected directory (wwwoffle-1.3a.orig)

The dpkg docs suggest this is potentially a symlink or permissions 
error, but I haven't modified the files, so I'm wondering if either the 
permissions on the files aren't correct or maybe the hamm directory 
structure is different from my bo; wwwoffle is only available from hamm.

-rw-r--r--   1 root     root         4806 Nov 29 15:19 
-rw-r--r--   1 root     root          632 Nov 29 15:19 
-rw-r--r--   1 root     root       102819 Nov 29 15:20 

I'm pretty sure I want to use wwwoffle, so I'd sure like to do this 
thing.  I looked at the three wwwoffle files, and they're in good shape 
(byte comparison, and I've looked at the tarballs with tar, .dsc with 
editor), I've tried changing the directory name, giving the files 
executable permission, I'm running as root, in /usr/src/.. , and I'm 
just about out of ideas.  Got any? :-)
