$ apt-cache show pgf
Version: 1.00-1

$ grep pgf CHANGES.packaging
  * upgrade pgf in texlive-pictures to 1.01 for compatibility fixes

pgf should be updated or it will break *ALL* old documents when using

latex-beamer is up2date.

I haven't come around to write bug reports for this ...

Best wishes
