Frans' original message [1] didn't mention anything about that. He did
mention, though, stuff coming from udebs from testing. Can it be that
qcontrol and micro-evtd are grabbed from testing when building the
installer? (That'd be consistent with the need to mass-migrate udebs
before doing a debian-installer upload.)
