ftp.de.debian.org sucks IME, is there not a better German mirror?
kullervo currently uses ftp.de.debian.org too :(

And the bugs in the package before that were not my fault (that was my
first upload as the maintainer).  Blame the gratuitous filing of
already-fixed bugs on ftp.de.debian.org or whatever else excuse you
want but please don't abuse me for bugs that a) weren't my fault and
b) I fixed in as timely a fashion as I could.  Oh, and Lintian didn't
``discover'' them either, believe it or not people did notice bugs
B.L. (before Lintian).
