That certainly makes those bugs more important but also reveals a more 
serious problem. Is there anything you can do to restrict or limit internet 
access on buildd servers?

We should not trust build script not to access internet. Even pbuilder limits 
network access and build servers should do it as well.

Besides I've just disabled networking test in "franela-goreq" and it was not 
even trying to access internet -- the particular test in question was 
accessing unrouteable from private subnet to test timeout --
IMHO not much of a threat even on unrestricted build servers to justify 
severity "serious" unless we follow the policy to the letter...
