OK, something seems to be strange. I will have a look at the logs. Maybe
something was mixed up in the local wpkg.xml of the hosts. Unfortunetely if
there is no clear way to reproduce it it's hard to identify potential problems.

I will have a look at the logs you sent to me (I received them, thank you). I am
going to handle this with medium priority as it seems not to be reproducible at
the moment. Please inform me if you have a clear test case where this happens or
if it happens again to you.

Thanks for the report anyway.
