Well, if such an error emerged in testing, it would take even longer to fix, 
as the fix would first have to go through unstable.  This is exactly the 
reason testing is often considered safer in regard to package stability, 
though - hopefully all errors such as this will turn up in unstable and 
therefore the broken package will not make it into testing.
