Then, if it won't let me redownload the release file when something doesn't
match the release file, I shall file another bug.
(d-i seems to be very strict with me when it comes to order of things...)

The order in which the mirrors take actions doesn't seem to be particulary
predictable. So really, if something in the chain
Release.gpg->Release->Packages->.*\.u?debs fails, one should start from the
beginning, presently this is the Packages file.

The concrete incident that caused me to file the bug was somewhat artificial,
however, I see things like this from time to time when updating my mirror.
