Followup-For: Bug #313028

- - If the input to xargs is a large number of very short options (for
  example, one character each), earlier versions of xargs would fail
  with 'Argument list too long'. This is because Linux's execve
  implementation requires that the sum of the sizes of all argument
  string pointers not exceed 128K (the actual limit is
  ARG_MAX - sizeof (void*)). Hopefully (Closes: #313028).

It indeed appears that this was the cause. Both init scripts and pbuilder work 
as expected again.
