That's strange. What used to be "-i some.package" should now be "-i some/package".

The -i works recursively only if the pattern ends with a '*'.

I did however log all patterns that were given as arguments to -i during a 'make clean images' and all those patterns ended with a '.*'. (Maby I missed some patterns somewhere?)

Regardless, if something that used to be "some.package" and is now "some/package/*", I'd say it's a bug.
