You're right! The latest entry in debian/changelog is:

tickr (0.6.1-1~precise1~ppa1) precise; urgency=low

  * No-change backport to precise

 -- Manu TM <manutm@manutm-netbook>  Fri, 22 Jun 2012 05:14:36 +0200

tickr (0.6.1-1) unstable; urgency=low

So the entry is generated by backportpackage which uses my
login and hostname. I wasn't aware of that because I didn't
specify a working dir and backportpackage used a temporary dir
and removed it at exit.
Thanks for pointing out that. Now I need backportpackage to
generate an entry with a valid e-mail address...
