Bug#41839: apt: apt-get reinstalls packages


this is really a bug. I'm facing it too:

On my system, qt1g_1.44-5 is installed. It's available through two
different apt lines: 

deb http://kde.tdyc.com potato kde contrib
deb ftp://ftp.leo.org/pub/comp/os/unix/linux/Debian/debian potato main

The latter only offers qt1g_1.44-4 (instead of -5).

Everytime I run 'apt-get dist-upgrade' apt wants to download qt1g_1.44-5:

asterix:~# dpkg -l qt1g | grep ^ii
ii  qt1g            1.44-5         Shared Library used by applications linked w
asterix:~# apt-cache showpkg qt1g | grep ^Versions:

(Ignore those "Err" messages, my system was offline.)
