Hmmmm, there might be other factors.
	-t experimental
prefers experimental, that means it might pull in new packages that
conflict with others. Without the actual output from apt I cannot really
say much.

My opinion is: if functionality tests work, we can upload to unstable,
and work from there to fix updates from stable/testing. Only if
functionality is broken to a large degree, we should refrain.
