Has anyone found the solution to this? I have had this problem too and I would be happy to provide any needed logs.

This certainly appears to be a bug in the build script. I cannot access
lp for some reason to check whether the file has actually been removed,
but that sounds unlikely.

This should be fixed in revision 1211 in trunk.

Indeed, this issue is now resolved. However while it is a new bug report, it might be nice to note that the right click feature for the comics is now gone.

Thanks for the fix!
