Ack and thanks, my bad. 

So let's try again. Now we have

1)  cd /var/local/cache/pbuilder/result/
2)  wajig install r-base-core_2.0.1-4_i386.deb r-gnome_2.0.1-4_i386.deb
	which are the current versions in unstable and testing
3)  wajig auto-download
	indicating r-base-core and r-gnome will be upgraded from my
	local experimental archive		
4)  wajig dist-upgrade
	which installs the two
5)  still scratching my head as I got one email with the (joint) changelog
    entry, but no email with the NEWS entry.

Any pointers?

Regards, Dirk
