Sorry for not being more precise, but that is not it.  Packages are only
being upgraded to the latest version of etch-backports (whether or not
the version currently installed on the system was pulled from
etch-backports) and there are no occurrences of "stable" in my

If "stable" were in there, it'd be lots more packages for the upgrade.
