Potato is now stable, so you will have to change your sources.list 
accordingly. FWIW, I prefer to use the release name (i.e. 'potato") 
to avoid this kind of suprise. I had been tracking potato in its later
unstable days and inadvertantly started tracking woody when potato went
frozen because my sources.list was coded to look at 'unstable' rather 
than potato. Nothing bad came of this, mind you, but I just didn't want
to be that close to the bleeding edge...
