Version 2.5-2 was in testing, which had bug #117452. The version in sid,
which has the bug fixed, doesn't build on arm.

Thanks. Removing heartbeat would actually remove webmin too, which I'm
avoiding atm.

It's best to treat it as a black box, but you did ask:

	* It's updated daily, at the start of the testing scripts
	* If a package isn't in testing, it's assumed not to have bugs in
	  testing.
	* If a package is at the same (source) version in testing and
	  unstable, it's assumed to have the same number of bugs.
	* If it's not the same, it's assumed that the number of bugs haven't
	  changed.

Cheers,
