i ran into this problem myself.

there were a few days when libc6-dev wanted kernel-{headers,source}-2.0.32
version >= 2.0.32-3, and the -3 revisions were stuck in Incoming.

dselect popped up the dependancy resolution screen with *both*
kernel-headers and kernel-source (2.0.32-2) selected.  a bug in dselect

fortunately, i had a mirror of Incoming and just installed 2.0.32-3 and
ran dselect again.
