I am a bit confused by this bug. Did you perhaps intend to submit it
against debootstrap instead of debhelper?
> Since bug #571136 was fixed we no longer actually need a devices.tar.gz

> Subject: [PATCH] debootstrap: fail gracefully copying devices.tgar.gz
> The devices tarball only exists if you build the source code (as root)
> before invoking the script. Since bug #571136 was fixed the
> --second-stage doesn't even use the devices tarball so we can afford to
> fail gracefully when it doesn't exist. In addition this allows us to
> call the script under -e conditions from a straight checkout which is
> useful in other cases.
