I was just looking at this yesterday, from:
	This is caused because apt's cache is too small to handle all of the
	packages that are included with stable, testing, and unstable.    This
	is also very easy to fix. Add the following line to   
	APT::Cache-Limit "8388608";
I guess you could try higher/lower numbers to suit your needs.
