http://koji.fedoraproject.org/scratch/roland/task_94236/ has rpm packages
with the latest (fixed) find-debuginfo.sh.  What else should I do?

Well, I suppose.  But isn't this what fedora-maintainers is for?  Can't I
just post there and expect people to read it?  I mean, it's rawhide, and I
broke it for a day.  I broke the linker far worse than this a few weeks
ago, and noone gave me any flak--and with these problems I will actually
know how to fix them!  

Honestly, I'd like to just break it again tomorrow, and bring the pain.
There was one bug found in the script today, which I fixed today.
There is one vaguely common upstream bug, which I posted a warning about.
Do we really need a dissertation on the subject?
