gtk1.2 and imlib1 have been removed from unstable, they'll be removed from
testing automatically.
However, the list of packages I've sent were linked against either of the
two and are now uninstallable. Not not all of them are scheduled for 
removal, since I'd estimate that at least half of them will be ported
or replaced by newer upstream using GTK2. (while the remainders will likely
be removed from unstable as well).

But sorting this out will take some time and to keep Squeeze neat, tidy
and constantly useful I would suggest to remove them from testing.

Or maybe I'm misunderstanding you and uninstallable packages are removed
automatically from testing?
