thank you; yes, that was it.  i was upgrading from "stable" in a
selective manner and didn't know of the need to upgrade debianutils
package, too.

hmm, i think it's not unusual for debian users to use "stable"
distribution and to upgrade to "unstable" only those packages one
really needs or is interested in.  therefore, personally, i would
prefer to have it included in dependencies... of course only during
its unstable period.  but anyway, it's not really needed, since you
replies so fast to the mailing list!  thanks again.

btw, jean-pierre, i'm glad to see that the wn package gets nicer and
nicer :-)

best wishes
