Yes! That was it, thank you very much!
BTW - if I would like to upgrade from i386 distro to amd64 - is it
possible to do it with apt or I have to reinstall whole system?
I have tried to do it by changing APT::Architecture "i386"; to "amd64"
and changing sources.list to
deb ftp://ftp.de.debian.org/debian-amd64/debian/ testing main contrib
but there were errors e.g. with libc6 upgrade. I could not manage it.
I have one more question - for production servers do you all use
"stable" distro? Up to now I have used "testing", but after this
accident with iptables I started to thing about it once more.
