I am afraid the x11-common issue affect us.

It looks like a cross-distribution circular dependencies:
sarge: aspell: Depends: aspell-bin, aspell-en | aspell6-dictionary
sarge: aspell-en: Depends: libaspell15 (>> 0.60)
etch: aspell: Depends: libaspell15 (>= 0.60), libc6 (>= 2.3.6-6), libgcc1 (>= 1:4.1.0), libncursesw5 (>= 5.4-5), libstdc++6 (>= 4.1.0), libaspell15 (= 0.60.4-4), dictionaries-common (>> 0.40)
etch: aspell-en Depends: aspell (>= 0.60.3-2)
But I did not go farther than that.

It is since I did not have non-free in my sources.list. With non-free
added it is not removed.
Imagine a large blue swirl here.
