The problem with your version number is, that it's greater than the
versionnumber of the package in sid.
Package in sid has 1:1.2.1.dfsg-1, so the correct version number for
the backport is 1:1.2.1.dfsg-0bpo1.

If you're a Debian developer, fix the version number and the
distribution (should be sarge-backports), and upload it via ftp to
If you aren't a Debian developer, fix the version number and the
distribution, upload the package somewhere and ping me again.
