Something of the sort happened here. I grabed Evolution1.2 7 Gimp1.3 + 
depends and i get a similar error message. The difference I see between 
my unstable box & woody box is the syntax? of the linked file

woody:  libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3 -> libstdc++-3-libc6.2-2-2.10.0.so
unstable: libstdc++libc6.2-2.so.3 -> libstdc++-3libc6.2-2-2.10.0.so

there may be other differences but what is the significants of the 
additional (-) after libstdc++ in the woody example?
