Hmm, the packages.d.o site is requesting non-binNMU versions. If I add
+b1 to the thumbnail URL then I get a different screenshot.

I think there are two bugs here; packages.d.o (and possibly synaptic)
passing the source package version instead of the binary package
version and also screenshots.d.n not choosing nearby binNMU versions.

Possibly screenshots.d.n should also have some sort of version
distance heuristic based on the version graph that the BTS knows

Could you check what synaptic is doing and file bugs about the issues?
