Why would that be the case?  Every time a new libc is uploaded, it's
going to take time for it to move to testing.  Critical bugs introduced
by the upload might prevent it from moving to testing for a long time,
as we've seen lately, but it should still take a couple of weeks, during
this time testing users will be getting a new libc that they never
explicitly asked for.
