apt-get dist-upgrade removes random packages.


I dist-upgrade from etch to unstable. I change my sources.list, performed a apt-get upgrade and be informed that some package will be removed. gallery2 concerns me in particular since it not obsolete in testing. Is something wrong with my database or do I misunderstand something?
