Unfortunately the build failure on alpha delayed linux-ntfs too much to 
rename the dependency in partman for the udeb in time for Beta 3. This 
means that partman in Beta 3 still depends on the old ntfstools-udeb.
I therefore decided to release Beta 3 with the old version of linux-ntfs 
(i.e: have the old version included on Beta 3 CDs).

I have also tested that the Provides: in ntfsprogs-udeb does work and so 
migrating linux-ntfs to testing after the release of Beta 3 will not 
break Beta 3, so I will request to unblock linux-ntfs probably next week.

The above also means that the Provides: will need to be kept at least 
until after the next d-i release.
