I've fixed this several times over the last couple of years, but it never
seems to work for everybody. I don't quite understand what's going on, but I
think it depends on the tool used to access the upgrade whether or not it
understands to check for _all.deb. Either that or something on sourceforge
keeps putting back a broken copy of the packages file.

I keep hoping to get time to put these packages (or preferably newer
equivalents) into the main debian archive as that should fix this particular
glitch for good.
