As for how to cope with the proposed-updates/security updates

Thanks for the tip, it works now.

Nevertheless, I don't find this desync acceptable.
Now one can't rely on apt-get update; apt-get upgrade to have a system
patched for all the known vulns, but has to check manually if a newer
AND UNPATCHED package is in proposed-updates and add the corresponding
entries in /etc/apt/preferences by hand. :S

Is it OK for the debian folks, and they don't intend to do anything about
this issue ?
