Package: apt
Version: 0.1.9

I wanted to point apt at the slink-proposed-updates.  So I tried this
in my sources.list (line break for readability):

deb ftp://ftp.mcc.ac.uk/pub/linux/distributions/Debian/dists \

That found the Packages file but not the packages, whereas

deb ftp://ftp.mcc.ac.uk/pub/linux/distributions/Debian \

found the packages but not the package file.

I think there maybe something a tiny bit wrong when it comes to
deciding whether to put a "dists" in the path or not.
