I have hit a failure in my understanding of the freeze process and would be 
grateful if someone could explain it to me.

If gfax in Sid is not fit for release, why does this have any effect on Jessie 
which is frozen, which I thought basically means that nothing new can come up 
from Sid?  This is what I have obviously got wrong.
