There's some problem, apparently.

Yes, others have run accross this. This bug is reported (in section
ftp.debian.org). I saw that because I wanted to report it too.
The solution I found is using
sed -e '/unstable/s//frozen/' Packages.frozen > Packages.f;
mv Packages.f Packages.frozen
just after downloading the package list. (Before dselect reads it !).
I used this only at installation time, but it worked perfectly.
Hope this helps,
