Lenny is not Sid now. Sheesh. Don't further confuse the guy.

Etch has gone stable. Lenny is the new testing. You're running
testing (now Lenny).
To avoid such surprises in the future, change any "testing" in
/etc/apt/sources.list to "lenny". When Lenny goes stable (2012? :-),
you'll continue to track Lenny, not "testing."
Somebody in here's been posting with essentially that in his .sig for
at least two months now. This is way old knowledge now.
Any technology distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced.
