I don't know either but I suspect whatever is being tested for Golang 
packages per "autopkgtest-pkg-go" may have a bug responsible for this

Lot of things may get broken in unstable due to changes in other packages 
around the same time.

In this particular package the only thing changed is introduction of "-dev"

unreproducible way unrelated to the change in recent upload.

I suspect that one of the patches is not applied for a test but that's only a
