I double checked and you are right about this one.  It's in my woody
Packages file, but it is also in my Packages file for the security
updates to stable.  Since the sources.list has security.d.o as its
very first entry, the download was from security.d.o and apt-get
showed the package as coming from Debian/Security (or whatever it
exactly says).

On this one you are wrong.  The security upgrade is 4:2.2.2-14.0woody1
which is not in the woody Packages file as your grep-dctrl clearly
