I meant the mirror I set up for my local network. It is mirrored from
ftp.fr.debian.org. But it seems to be the right question! (Thanks
again for the insightful hints.)
I have now performed the following tests:
The problem exists when using:
* my local mirror (personal network) that seems to be accurately in
sync with ftp.fr.debian.org
* directly ftp.fr.debian.org (hence the problem comes from there)
* directly ftp2.fr.debian.org (a different provider)
The problem vanishes when using:

I will stop there the tests for today (building from outside mirrors
takes too much time). So either it is a temporary discrepancy between
the master and its mirrors that may vanish with the next mirror pulse

mirrors are made. I have not identified the faulty package though (if
there is...). :-( (No update to shadow).
Am I really the only one seeing this on mirrors other than
