What misled me was that the first build was successful and only the 
second build failed.

The failure in the second build is:
=== RUN   TestInotifyStress
--- FAIL: TestInotifyStress (5.00s)
        inotify_test.go:236: Creates and removes should not be off by more than 
one: 1502 creates, 1509 removes

Is the second build constantly failing due to some difference in the 
build environments (e.g. TestInotifyStress dislikes French), or is
this a testcase that sometimes fails randomly?

This seems clearly different from both #819452 and your
"dpkg-buildpackage -A" issue.

I agree with you that this is RC no matter whether it depends on the 
environment or happens randomly.
