Package: bzr-builddeb
Version: 0.19
Severity: important

I would like to do a merge package with the results of dh-make-pear,
but this seems impossible.  The reason appears to be the package.xml
file in the .orig.tgz from the PEAR archive are not in a

Here is the layout of the file tgz:

 $ tar tzf ../tarballs/php-mdb2_2.4.1.orig.tar.gz
 . . .

Here's what happens:

 $ bzr bd
 Running in merge mode
 Building branch from revision mah at everybody.org-20070829141327-7p542fskxjzwknky
 Preparing the build area: ../build-area
 Exporting to ../build-area/php-mdb2-2.4.1 in merge mode
 Looking for ../tarballs/php-mdb2_2.4.1.orig.tar.gz to use as upstream source
 bzr: ERROR: [Errno 17] File exists: '../build-area/php-mdb2-2.4.1'
 $ ls ../build-area/php-mdb2-2.4.1/
 $ ls ../build-area/
 builddeb-c_P_cV php-mdb2-2.4.1
 $ ls ../build-area/builddeb-c_P_cV/

Willing to reproduce using Debian Unstable if that would help.  (I
just don't have that available ATM.)
