I expect(ed) so too, but I dont see how this matters. The only thing we test 
(and support) are installations from our lenny(-test) images anyway, so why 
care if unstable is broken?

And as lenny-test already has the new debian-edu package that shouldnt be 

Please also note that I followed the "release early, release often" mantra and 
feel free to do new uploads to fix stuff ;-)
