I agree, specially because the documentation was correct, and it worked
just because of a bug in implementation

I'm attaching the patch I did try to craft some minutes ago, but in the 
meanwhile,
I think bumping severity to RC is something needed, because even if not (yet) 
enforced
by policy, breaking autopkgtests in such a way is source of troubles.
(and maybe the package now is just completely broken, not just autopkgtests)


(I'm still not a perl man, I'm not sure I did it correctly, and moreover I had 
trobles
in doing the string concatenation)
