No, circular dependencies are not an issue here.

The sml-nj package is related to the problem, but it has nothing to do with
what's in testing.  Is there a reason for the name change of this package?
If the sml-nj package is done, you should request its removal from unstable
by filing a bug against ftp.debian.org.

The current status is that there are lots of smlnj and sml-nj binaries of
different versions in unstable, and the archive scripts can't sort out which
binaries belong to which source packages.  For that matter, neither can I at
a glance; but it seems that at least one version of the smlnj source package
was uploaded that produced an sml-nj binary package, so I think the old
sml-nj source package will need to go from unstable before this can be
cleared up.

Er, you don't *have* to always upload the newest upstream version?
