Thanks, but this doesn't seem to be right.  I take it 4.6.1-3 is a typo
for 4.1.6-3? In that case, that's the one I was looking at, and it's the
only such package listed on the Debian site. And it still gives the
REMOVE message if I were to install it -- which, as you say, I won't do
for the moment.
