I guess this was linked to the load... I triggered it once
& mostly succeeded to heat the room even more.

Thank you very much for noticing this bug and for the hints,
when I filled it I felt it was like tossing a bottle in the sea.

Now, this src:cruft package is on end-of-life care;
I don't know what trigger the reproducible rebuilds,
but some FTFBS in the future are still possible as long
as there is no need to upload a new version of src:cruft;
please ignore these further FTBFS.

I've written my own proposal to get the whole cruft-handling fixed [1],
but that's not really a new idea either[2][3];
never had the time yet to dig in dpkg's code.
