Re: apt 0.6 in experimental

If this is off-topic, let me know.

I installed apt 0.6.4 from incoming and it seems to work fairly well until I 
add my public key using apt-key.  If I don't add my public key, I get a 
warning, but "apt-get update" works fine.  Once I add the key, I get the 
following strange error when i apt-get update:

Get:2 http://debian.houseofnate.net experimental Release.gpg [189B]
Get:5 http://debian.houseofnate.net experimental Release [2395B]
Fetched 61.5kB in 1s (36.6kB/s)

W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems
E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones 
used instead.

The file http://debian.houseofnate.net/dists/experimental/Release does exists 
and is getting downloaded from my server with a 200 result, and AFAICT is a 
valid Release file (based on an official one).  Apt is, however, neglecting 
to download any Packages files, according to my apache log.

The relevant source line is this:

deb http://debian.houseofnate.net/ experimental nwt cdp

This probably won't make sense without more information, but is this the right 
place to report this (or should I file a bug report?), and what additional 
info might be helpful?  I'm a bit baffled and unable guess what is wrong 
without looking at the source (which I may do later if I have time, but 
haven't yet).
