Because unless otherwise hinted by the release team, source packages are
considered for testing one at a time, and the binary package names for
swt-gtk changed from libswt-gtk3* to libswt-gtk-3.1*.  So updating swt-gtk
removes the library that swingwt depends on.

They probably will, but there's not much sense in having them retry the
build unless hppa is also fixed, since you would just need to make another
upload for hppa.
