Hmm, now this is strange.  I compared the md5sums of the deb I built,
and what's uploaded:

-rw-r--r-- 1 bryce bryce     3677278 Oct 27 14:47

-rw-r--r-- 1 bryce warthogs  3677054 Oct  6 00:53

I'm rather surprised that even installed!  What md5sum does the package
you built have?  Does it match either of these?
