Just tried it.  The behaviour I see with an unstable pin-priority of
100, is very similar to what I had without these settings in the
preferences file, and with
	APT::Default-Release "testing";
in the apt.conf file.

With the preferences settings you have shown me, can I lose the
APT::Default-Release setting?  (ie. do the two, do the same thing?)
