This is caused by:

$ cat log.task_order

do_cleansstate (24289): log.do_cleansstate.24289
do_deploy_archives_setscene (24395): log.do_deploy_archives_setscene.24395
do_fetch (24407): log.do_fetch.24407
do_package_write_rpm (25448): log.do_package_write_rpm.25448
do_package_qa (25451): log.do_package_qa.25451

So do_deploy_archives can run from sstate, created a .src.rpm in WORKDIR/deploy-sources,
then it was removed when rpm was running. This leads to a broken Source line in the
spec file as the original file was found by the os.listdir().

This fix is just a bandaid over much more fundamental problems sadly.
