Oh. That's a misuse of a CDBS variable intended only to declare files
to install, not pass arguments to the debhelper tool.
The correct way to have CDBS not auto-include any docs/changelog files
is to set the variables to the empty value:
(what you effectively did in the past was not pass as argument, but
instead tell CDBS to only install the file "--no-act" which was
skipped because it didn't exist).
