I don't know if yours is the same cause, but this happened to me
recently.  The reason turned out to be that I had reused a squeeze net
install CD that was a few months old and apparently it was out of rev.
with the current squeeze.  The fix was easy.  aptitude:
u (update packages)
U (mark for upgrade)
g (many packages upgraded)
possibly had to iterate U g g until nothing left to do
Then it came up in X.
