mmh i use git-buildpackage with pbuilder and I see these issues also for my 
build from master today:

git checkout master
ARCH=i386 git-buildpackage

The problem is not that pkgkde_symbolshelper is a really nice tool. The

The more I read about lib packaging I'm sure that upstream has to change the 
SONAME, if they break the API. If they don't change the SONAME, we have to 
create workarounds...
