and? I think these are bugs that we should hide at least in
[old]stable and on slow architectures. That's not the only place we
don't fall on bugs.

(E.g. the we don't uninstall packages hides bugs as well. But I'm
happy with that.)

An alternative suggestion: How if we grep for the specific occurence
in the build logs, and file bug(s) (or even autofile once per week
against buildd.d.o if there was at least one occurence)? That way we
don't block builds, but we still notice.
