The path names in question only occur during the runtime of debbindiff
as it is extracting them to a pair of temporary directories, diffing
them and then deleting them. The tar.gz files passed to debbindiff are
in the current directory and are fine, the issue is that the .tar files
extracted from those .tar.gz files are attributed to temporary paths
instead of being attributed to the .tar.gz files. I found that it
confusing that debbindiff was showing /tmp/XXXdebbindiff/ temporary
paths inside the .gz compression container, especially since the .gz
file was not produced by debbindiff and debbindiff did not exist when
the .gz file was created.
