gpsim and quicklist depend on libgtkextra16, which isn't in testing yet.
Upgrading gtk+extra in order to move libgtkextra16 into testing will
remove libgtkextra14, which will temporarily break gpsim* and quicklist
until they're upgraded too. The testing scripts don't look two moves
ahead like that, so the gtk+extra upgrade needs to be forced manually.
I've posted to -devel or mailed aj in the past for this sort of thing,
although I suspect filing a bug against ftp.debian.org is probably the
more correct way to go.
