The Replaces is not on the right package given the message. ia32-libkrb53
should replace ia32-libgssapi-krb5-2 and not the opposite. Also
1.6.dfsg.4~beta1-5lenny1~22 is excluded from the Replaces currently given
it's << and not <=. So even if the replace indicated applied before-hand, it
doesn't apply anymore to this release.
