If you have upstream source and the debian/ folder in one Git, then  
the build should attempt at keeping the source tarball intact.  
(Otherwise you have to do a git reset --hard; git clean -df after  
every non-chroot build).

Some upstreams ship build files in their tarballs. If your build logic  
touches those files, you have to move them
out of the way prior to autoreconf/configure/build and move them back  

Other option is (which I start liking at the moment): only have the  
debian/ folders in Git and a precise get-orig-source rule in

Rather this???: sbuild -sAd unstable owncloud-client_1.5.2+dfsg-1.dsc

Ok, this was the missing link... I will see to upload owncloud-client  
later today/tomorrow.
