Bug#584891: naming and versioning of linux-image-2.6.32-5-686 and linux-image-2.6.32-trunk-686 confusing

Package: linux-image-2.6
Severity: normal

due to some issues i checked today the installed kernel and was rather confused.
beside others i have installed
1) linux-image-2.6.32-trunk-686 
2) linux-image-2.6.32-5-686

dpkg says the versions are respectively
1) 2.6.32-5
2) 2.6.32-15

why does -trunk- have the version 2.6.32-5 while -2.6.32-5- has the version 2.6.32-15?
