OP has both testing and unstable in his sources.list. He is probably also
using /etc/apt/preferences or might try using it in the near future. OP
should be aware that 'preferences' does not recognize release code names,
e.g. sarge. In preferences, one should use the releases should be called
only, stable, testing, or unstable. Code names do not work there.
