*sigh* You need to maintain libdes425-3 in testing.  I thought
libkrb53 included both libkrb4.so.2 and libdes425.so.3, but it depends
on libdes425-3 for the second.
)(Sorry, there were multiple different breakdowns of this around)

If that's not it then then please read on; otherwise sorry for wasting
your time.

even if you manage to fix this with uploads to unstable, I'd like to
understand a bit more about what went wrong here.
I don't like it when I give people advice that might break things and thought I had very high confidence in my statement:-)

You tried to hint krb5 into testing while retaining the libkrb53
binarypackage  alrready in testing and something became uninstallable?

As I understand it: krb5 in unstable has no dependencies not in
testing.  I.E. krb5 can migrate alone unless the migration would break
something in testing.

Nothing conflicts with the krb5 in unstable.  I haven't actually
checked this, but it would be really strange for me not to know about.

krb5 in unstable satisfies all dependencies in testing except:
libkrb53, libdes425-3 and libkadm55 disappear.

libkrb53and libdes425-3 in testing can be installed with the krb5 in
unstable; unstable krb5 meets the libkrb53 dependencies in testing if
libdes425-3 is retained.

Nothing at all in testing depends on libkadm55.

So, unless it was libdes425-3, I'm really really confused.
