Yes, I know, I found out when running "dinstall -n". That is why I had
written then remark quoted above about not fetching .12 from incoming.
I should have stated this more clearly.

I can do that (but not before friday), but as it is very simple and
short I'll repeat it here: Take an extracted package (I used
volume.app), append ~ to the version-number in debian/changelog
and run "dpkg-buildpackage -uc -us -sd -rfakeroot -S". The resulting
source-package cannot be unpacked with woody's dpkg-source.
