Bug#254820: "apt-cache priority pkg" wrong on priorities

Package: apt
Version: 0.5.25
Severity: normal

master@tofu:~$ apt-cache policy initscripts
  Installed: 2.85-15
  Candidate: 2.85-15
  Package Pin: 2.85-15
  Version Table:
     2.85-20 1000
        300 http://server.home.mamane.lu sarge/main Packages
        200 http://server.home.mamane.lu sid/main Packages
 *** 2.85-15 1000
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

The priority of 2.85-20 is displayed as 1000, but is 300. If it were
1000, too, it would be the candidate.

In this bug report, the automatically generated "System Information
  APT prefers testing
but as my preferences file shows, stable is preferred, second only to
my own personal apt repository, which is:
 700 http://debian.home.mamane.lu woody/main Packages
     release v=3.0,o=LEMCorp,a=stable,l=Debian,c=main
     origin debian.home.mamane.lu
