Dear maintainers,

With a recent upload of libarchive-zip-perl the autopkgtest of
strip-nondeterminism fails in testing when that autopkgtest is run with
the binary packages of libarchive-zip-perl from unstable. It passes when
run with only packages from testing. In tabular form:
                       pass            fail
libarchive-zip-perl    from testing    1.66-1
strip-nondeterminism   from testing    1.6.0-1
all others             from testing    from testing

I copied some of the output at the bottom of this report.

Currently this regression is blocking the migration of
libarchive-zip-perl to testing [1]. Due to the nature of this issue, I
filed this bug report against both packages. Can you please investigate
the situation and reassign the bug to the right package? If needed,
please change the bug's severity.
