This doesn't look normal to me.
The command starting with "aptitude -t experimental install" should only upgrade the packages
belonging to those source packages (and that you already had installed).
The dist-upgrade (or full-upgrade as I did) did remove a bunch of packages (don't know which
exactly, couldn't properly see it, but at least the python bindings).
I don't know why it wants to remove all those packages with you though.
