This is a bug introduced by the security team. There is nothing the
stable release team can do about this but only release the next stable
point release in near future.
I read the developers reference where it says:

as "Do only build packages within a stable enviroment." If the security
team uses additional resources to build their packages, their fault.
They can not even been sure that packages in proposed-updates will be in
the next stable point release.
So, please go and ask the security team to update that package again.
