According to the documentation that comes with fakeroot (and is 
installed in /usr/share/doc/fakeroot/README):

fakeroot can be built to either use SYSV IPC or TCP for message passing.

Cases for which the SYSV IPC version fails or causes problems but for 
which fakeroot-tcp has been observed to work well include the items 
listed below.

  * Multithreaded applications (using pthread)
  * Running under realtime-preempt kernel

So unless I am missing something, it does not seem entirely wrong.  
Anyway, I will remove the install message from SVN so it will not appear 
for the next rebuild.
