Which lintian are you using and which flags do you set?
Latest lintian in Jaunty is 2.2.5 while debian has 2.2.10 already. I
always run lintian inside pbuilder chroot to make sure I'm using the
latest lintian from sid.
I also anable informational, pedantic and experimental options.
See log attached - it was on the contrary complaining that debug
symbols should be in debug section..... Policy is out of date????
