Testing does not automatically resolve situations like this (Two
packages need to go in at _exactly_ the same time, updating either one
of them separately does not work). - The release managers need to
manually add a hint. http://ftp-master.debian.org/testing/hints/
If you ever encounter this situation you should verify that the hint
not yet been added and send a mail to debian-release. - I'll try to
take care of this specific one by grabbing a RM on IRC.
