Bug#193934: dselect: Possible smoking gun?

Package: dselect
Version: N/A; reported 2003-05-27
Followup-For: Bug #193934

I've had the same problem for a couple of weeks on another (i386)
system, which is using sarge (pin-priority 500) plus sid (pri 99).
Commenting out all the sid lines in /etc/apt/sources.list doesn't fix
it; additionally commenting out the lines for testing:main (from
ftp.de.debian.org; Packages file dated May 26th) and
testing/updates:main (from security.debian.org; dated May 19th) causes
the error message to go away, but I'd rather not run dselect that way
:-) .  A quick glance through the latter Packages file doesn't reveal
anything immediately obvious, but more experienced eyes may well do a
better job.

So: Are testing:main and testing/updates:main broken? or is it some
dselect incompatibility?  Doing "dpkg -s dselect" on the affected
system yields:

Package: dselect

Hope this helps,
