Yes, I regularly get new packages, and they always come from stable
(obviously, since I put a pin-priority of 1001).  It seems like a bug, but I
don't even want to report it unless it is reproducible, that's just wasting

in /etc/apt/sources.list:
deb-src http://ftp3.nrc.ca/debian/ stable main contrib non-free

in /var/lib/apt/lists:

in /var/lib/apt/lists/ftp3.nrc.ca_debian_dists_stable_main_source_Sources:
Package: fakeroot
Binary: fakeroot
Version: 1.5.6
Priority: optional
Section: utils
Maintainer: Clint Adams <schizo@debian.org>
Build-Depends: sharutils, libc6-dev-s390x [s390], libc6-dev-sparc64 [sparc],
ia32-libs-dev [amd64], amd64-libs-dev [i386] | lib6-dev-amd64 [i386],
libc6-dev-ppc64 [powerpc], libc6-dev-powerpc [ppc64], lib64gcc1 [i386], po4a
(>= 0.23)
Architecture: any
Standards-Version: 3.6.2
Format: 1.0
Directory: pool/main/f/fakeroot
 cac5f2f495e3cb8bd73106bd83ba5b91 707 fakeroot_1.5.6.dsc
 4f26b43c57de53e05ce2c47cf525f1c6 980208 fakeroot_1.5.6.tar.gz

So wait... why is the fakeroot source package in there 1.5.6?  In stable, I get:

$ dpkg --status fakeroot
Version: 1.2.10

Does Debian have source packages that don't match the binary in the stable
release?  I sure hope not.
