It looks like, yes ... at least for me: But did you actually write to
your apt sources list the Debian locations for sarge, and only those
for sarge? Or do you have the locations for unstable in there, too?

I'm asking because I can't understand how one could install *by
accident* packages from one branch while actually wanting pulled in
those from another one.
