a problem I see *NOW* is that gcc-3.3 and gcc-3.4 (libgcc1 where all new
stuff is built against) were uploaded with urgency high and therefore
could make the freeze but gtk+2.0 was some days before with _low_ and it
is now only 3/10 days old.

So every package in unstable uploaded since the gcc-3.4 upload to
unstable - even if it is outside base and wants to get (RC-)bugs fixes - 
may not enter testing...

I think there should be an exception for gcc-3.3/gcc-3.4...
