I did so. It contains the two archives (control.tar.gz [21.7 KB],
data.tar.gz [101,2 MB]) and debian-binary [4 bite] as regularly. Only
that data.tar.gz now is much bigger than it should. I extracted the
archive an tried to find the culprit but the increase in size seems
evenly distributed among the sub-folders in ./lib/. ./drivers accounts
alone for about 138 MB, followed by ./net (40MB), ./fs (34MB)
and ./sound (27MB). Curious. 
I'll give it another try tomorrow.
