Is that marking visible in any publicly-readable file? auric:/org/ftp.debian.org/testing/data/testing/Bugs The relevant line is "xutils 1" -- ie, xutils in testing has 1 RC bug.

Yup, it was mistaken. "Maintainer: Branden Robinson", "14 days old (needed 10 days), "Depends: foo bar" and "baz (source, i386) is (less) buggy!" are all examples of lines that'll show up in update_excuses without preventing the package from being considered as a valid candidate.
