Ok, triggered builds for aodh in sid (with and without eatmydata).

Will let you know about the results in a few hours...

In either case, please note that my build environment is not special
at all. For this bug report, it's just sbuild + eatmydata, on a single
CPU virtual machine, and that's all.

To use sbuild + eatmydata, you just need a file
/etc/schroot/chroot.d/stretch like this:

description=Debian stretch

(To prevent a chichen-and-egg problem, eatmydata has to be installed
before you can use the last line saying command-prefix...)

In my experience, when eatmydata is to blame for a build failure, it
usually fails always (i.e. this is not one of those difficult random
build failures).
