apt-get upgrade and recent samba security update


I've been following the recent samba security update (DSA 1257-1
issued on February 5th).  So I typed this on my terminal:

# apt-get update
# apt-get upgrade

and was quite surprised by the download size.  It was about 23.6 megs
and included packages `samba', `samba-common', `samba-doc', `swat' and
may be some more of them but all related to samba.  I had all my
packages updated before the issue.

I've downloaded all of it anyway, but now I wonder how could a minor
fix affect _that_ much so I need to download all of this stuff?  Am I
the only one who experience such a problem?
