No-no, the tarballs are sacrosanct. :)

I'm baffled.  Did gbp clone leave you on the debian/master branch?  If
not, the lack of gbp configuration could certainly cause problems.

That shouldn't be necessary, gbp import-orig reads the branch names from
debian/gbp.conf.  I tested the above command chain on my current
checkout, and it worked perfectly with gbp  I've never used
gbp clone, though.
