Thanks That's the problem.  In debian/patches/30_ast-data-dir.dpatch I'm 
supposed change the default location for the .pid file, but for some reason 
this didn't make it into the 1.2beta packages.

You need to apply:

+  ASTVARRUNDIR=$(INSTALL_PREFIX)/var/run/asterisk

to debian/patches/30_ast-data-dir

I shall upload another build to experimental.
