The file ids in the tar file come straight from the debs.

The debs were borged because of the different filesystem behaviour, a bug in
dpkg-source, and building as root.

I hope Jeff makes sure that on his system, all debs have proper uid/gids
(by using --inherit-dir-group on the autobuilder, and taking other
appropriate measures, as making sure no sgid flag is set, and that he uses
the patch for dpkg-source if necessary).

Apart from that, we can do nothing about it but to keep it fixed in future
versions of packages, so that all newly installed systems don't have this
bug.  Old users need to reinstall or fix the permissions themselves.
