Sorry, am I to understand that it's fixed and that it was your mirror list?
If so, happy you, I've rarely seen such an issue fixed so easily :)

And, of course, if that was it one could consider it being a bug, since even
if the list was faulty/too huge/whatever, apparently apt-get didn't handle
that in any proper way ...

Either way, great it works.
