Yes, your theory is correct =( I'll request a binNMU for amd64. By the
way, last time this happened you asked for a pointer to existing
discussions about source only uploads. I did not have any specific
pointers, but if you search the history in lists.debian.org, for
debian-devel mainly, you'll find discussions going all the way back to
2001 (perhaps even older) about that.

Thanks, and sorry for the trouble yet again.
