The problem is that some packages in unstable have after the libtiff4 
transition a dependency on a frozen package that can't be fulfilled in 
sarge (since this frozen package is not or only in an older version in 

The most obvious example:


Package: gthumb
Version: 3:2.4.1-3
Depends: ..., libgpg-error0 (>= 1.0), ..., libtiff4, ...

Package: libgpg-error0
Version: 1.0-1


Package: gthumb
Version: 3:2.3.2-1
Depends: ..., libtiff3g, ...

Package: libgpg-error0
Version: 0.7-3

libgpg-error is frozen.
