 b7f4ab23fe3e508fee6eab106632679992ca4688) which is up for review (while I
 look at the reproducibility issues). boklm: Could you please have a look
 and test it on your machine(s)? One thing I am particularly interested in
 is your report about whether killing the old qemu process (from the
 previous build step) still works as it used to. It turns out on my machine
 I have to wait about an hour [sic!] until the process gets killed. If that
 is not just my machine I'd be happy to hear about possible workarounds or

 I tried building that on my machine, but it gets stuck while creating the
 Formatting 'target-jessie-amd64.qcow2', fmt=qcow2 size=17179869184
 backing_file='base-jessie-amd64.qcow2' encryption=off cluster_size=65536

 I can see this qemu process running:
 qemu-system-i386 -enable-kvm -m 2000 -smp 2 -drive file=target-
 jessie-i386.qcow2,cache=writeback,if=virtio -net nic,model=virtio -net
 user,hostfwd=tcp: -vnc

 After stopping the build, killing qemu, and restarting it, it gets stuck
 again at the same point.
