yes, i failed to show an existing situation ... i no longer use testing.
I know how the passage is done. dependencies are checked.
But, i had issues in the past (etch testing cycle). Since Gustvo raised
the testing problems, i thought i should gave my word has *testing*
You grabbed the nvidia problem ... that was just one. Other was with
xorg and xbase-clients (a newer version of xbase-clients was needed),
when the xorg 7.0 x11-common package entered testing. xorg 7.0 (or
6.9 ... i don't remember) dropped the use of the symlink to /usr/X11/bin
(or other place, i can't remember) ... i even opened a bug  (which i
closed a few weeks ago - this was the 6.x to 6.9 transition).
i just want to say that things like these can't happen ... (in this
case, reverse dependencies where ok ... by the way).
