It seems that this is the actual problem
I allways use packages, also when using ebuild for example for developing
ebuilds (also bailing out halfway, but because of errors). I've never
seen this behaviour. The only invalid packages I encountered anytime
where created using quickpkg instead of with ebuild package.
