it is about bug 710881, https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/710881. The 
workaround described in the bug report and applied to the CUPS package 
principally works but there is a problem with buildds. A CUPS package 
built on my local machine has cups.png correctly converted, but in the 
package built by buildds the cups.png file is not converted. See my last 
comment in the bug report.

Are PNG files in a Debian package generally converted to make them 
smaller (and this converts cups.png back to the bad format)?

Or does "convert" on the buildds behave different than "convert" on a 
local Ubuntu desktop box?

Or is there some problem with the subpackages for architecture-dependent 
and -indpendent binary packages being built in different buildds runs?

Or does the command line for the conversion error out but not stop the 
build (I did not see anything indicating this in the amd64 buildlog on 
the buildds servers)?

The conversion of cups.png is done in the "binary-post-install/cups::" 
rule  in debian/rules, by the command line

convert debian/$(cdbs_curpkg)/usr/share/cups/doc-root/images/cups.png 
PNG32:cups.png && \
         mv -f cups.png 

Any idea?
