Same is true of mipsel.

This appears to be related but I'm not sure if it is the same bug:

The debootstrap.log doesn't say anything useful: it's only two lines.

That bug refers to a newer version of qemu-user-static.

ubuntu-bug automatically chooses qemu-linaro but I think this should probably be assigned to qemu.

affects: qemu-linaro (Ubuntu) → qemu (Ubuntu)

qemu-linaro in precise is in fact built from the qemu-linaro source package.

This does not occur on i386. The bug only appears on amd64.

Well, it's fixed in Saucy but I'm not sure about the other flavours.

Apparently that's a different source: qemu not qemu-linaro.
