As Steve already pointed out: this is (for the very most) a bug in piuparts.

(That's #526046 and badly fixed in svn, pending upload. The fixes uses a 
(incomplete) hard coded lists of circular depends (urgh!), which is also why 
I haven't uploaded it. It's running on piuparts.d.o though.)

(And, FWIW, piuparts.d.o still wouldnt test all packages: if a package has a 
broken depends (broken as in the piuparts test fails), that package won't be 
tested. Sadly there are quite some broken depends.)

That's totally true :)
