Oh, it happened again faster than I expected... I was suspecting of
something environmental, since I could get the failure if I ran it by
hand, or an equivalent shell script. But, while I was writing this
reply I went and tried to run it by hand again:

address@hidden:/usr/src/buildd/coreutils/coreutils-git $ ls > a && echo 1 && 
sudo src/ginstall -Cv a b && echo 2 && sudo src/ginstall -Cv -g2 a b && echo 3 
&& sudo src/ginstall -Cv a b && echo 4 && sudo src/ginstall -Cv a b 
[sudo] password for hggdh: 
`a' -> `b'
removed `b'
`a' -> `b'
removed `b'
`a' -> `b'
removed `b'
`a' -> `b'
address@hidden:/usr/src/buildd/coreutils/coreutils-git $ 

Now, *that* was a surprise. Time to dig in. Updating my environment

I did build a Jaunty server image under VirtualBox; I will git clone
and build it there, and on an (older) Ubuntu Hardy image I found backed up.
