Thanks for testing it!

Possible reasons:

   - There's actually not a bug on the cmake files themselves, but a
     bug on the cmake-to-Makefile generator that is not present in the
     camke-to-ninja generator. I don't think that's the case, but it
     could perfectly be.

   - The cmake-to-ninja generator (or ninja itself) happens to build
     the target in a different order than make, one that doesn't
     trigger the problem.

Either way I would let the upstream bug open until someone confirms
where the problem is.

For Debian the change is very simple (apply the patch to use
cmake+ninja to the unstable branch), are we still on time to upload
this? In any case I'd wait until 2.22.7-1 reaches buster first, it has
important fixes.
