How often did you try to build the hello package?  Did you also try
larger packages?

I remember that fakeroot was unreliable, and I see no relevant change
in the source since then.  The bug report says "Reproducibility:
Intermittent".  It's not new that building the hello package with
fakeroot sometimes can work (IIRC).

It's true that a better test case would be useful (even better a small
testcase which triggers the bug more often).  But until then the only
info we have is that fakeroot breaks under heavy load.  More debugging
is required.
