I have a package which includes a subpackage where I want to have a
different version number as for the main package.
This basically seems to work until it comes to Release numbers.

RPM seems to support the different versions correctly but the
buildservice apparently has a problem with it as release numbers are
always identical for all packages created from one source rpm which
could lead to release numbers going down if main package version number
gets increased while the subpackage version number stays the same.

Yes, but why is that a problem ?

All updaters compare $version-$release and never look on the release

So, if the version increases, it shouldn't be a problem when the release
number goes done.

So you misunderstood something.
MozillaThunderbird changes version from 3.0b3 to 3.0.0
enigmail stays on version 0.96a
-> Release gets reset and enigmail gets "downgraded"

Ah, yes ...

Sorry, I have no easy solution for that right now, that needs some thinking.
(The release number is current only stored once per package, but not per sub

A bugreport won't harm ...
