The only thing that matters to the archive software is what distribution
is listed in the *.changes file. Normally, this is taken from the
changelog. I'm not sure why it would have been set to sid in this case,
but looking in the PTS at heimdal, you can see that the *.changes file
associated with the upload says sid.

Unfortunately, to get back to 1.3 in unstable, you have to upload
something with a higher version number than the upload that was supposed
to go to experimental, which means either using an epoch or an artificial
version number that's higher than the one above.
