Not sure why your apt-show-versions can't distinguish between unstable and
testing. This is the excerpt of the output of apt-show-versions on my system.
It clearly mentions "testing" after every package. I am only using the testing
branch of repositories. If you are using unstable, then I think it would have
mentioned it right after the package.
openoffice.org-writer/unstable uptodate 2..(whatever) ;-)
