I believe I now found the real cause of this problem: dh_buildinfo was 
invoked once across all binary packages.  I now tightened to invoke 
specifically for each binary package - as is done for all other dh_* 
tools with CDBS.

Regarding running dh_buildinfo only optionally: it really should be 
harmless to invoke, and the general principle of CDBS is to invoke all 
generally sane tools as long as they do not cause surprise 
build-dependencies or other regressions.

Thanks for your help with this.
