Thanks Kumar.

I added:
deb http://ftp.nz.debian.org/debian oldstable-proposed-updates main
to my sources.list, ran aptitude update, and tried again.
I get the same version (2005.dfsg.3-1).

That would appear to be newer than the one mentioned above ... but is
still uninstallable.

I tried using -t oldstable-proposed-updates, but it said 'Unable to find
an archive "oldstable-proposed-updates" for the package

I guess my sources.list line is possibly wrong, but I don't get errors
from aptitude update (I did from our in-house mirror; it must be setup

Any hints as to where I'm going wrong?
