Someone is breaking etch (testing)?



Hi everyone;

In the past two days, etch (testing) has been updated with a kde meta package 
which apparently depends on packages from unstable which, in turn, has caused 
aptitude to suggest removing KDE when performing a system-wide upgrade. I 
have been able to hold it back by following the dependacy tree backwards and 
marking the troubled packages (kfilereplace, kimagemapeditor, klinkstatus, 
komander, kxsldbg) to hold. It appears that parts of kde-3.4.2 have slipped 
through the ftpmasters prematurely. Can anyone else confirm this? Why did 
this happen? Was this a mistake?

Perhaps I have a package from unstable in there somewhere? How would I track 
it down? I have unstable in my sources.list in case I want to ever pin 
something in from it but so far I haven't.

Here is my /etc/apt/sources.list and /etc/apt/preferences:
