Bug#576752: apt: should dpkg-source be run automatically when apt-getting a new source version?

Hi Michael Gilbert!

mhhh. Could you describe it a bit more - at best with a series of
commandline invocations leading you to your problem?

I have no problems with calling "apt-get source" multiple times
in a row, so i guess i have missed an important detail, e.g.

$ apt-get source apt
[apply patches, modify debian/changelog, do whatever]
$ apt-get source apt -b

works for me as expected (= compiles my modified apt).

Best regards / Mit freundlichen Grüßen,
