There are currently some transitions going on for testing/etch which
tend to cause some breakage. The alternative would be to get a
dependency maze in unstable which grows larger and larger, and will
only transition when most of its bugs were fixed in unstable, i.e.
not before the next release freeze, when it is too late for large
If you need a stable system, use stable, not testing.
