Package: apt

I have configured my apt sources.list to use "stable", "testing" 
and "unstable". I use pinning and APT::Default-Release to stay at "stable".
My current config is attached.


`apt-cache show libc6 --no-all-versions'

gives me the package from unstable. Which is libc6   2.5-4   unstable
I expected the one from stable libc6   2.3.6.ds1-13    stable

-- snip from apt-cache manual page --
-a, --all-versions 
Print full records for all available versions. This is the default; to turn it 
off, use __ --no-all-versions __. If --no-all-versions is specified, only the 
__candidate version__ will displayed (the one which would be selected for 
installation). This option is only applicable to the show command. 
Configuration Item: APT::Cache::AllVersions.
-- snap --

reading in the manual page of apt-cache,
apt-cache show performs a function similar to dpkg --print-avail


`dpkg --print-avail libc6'

show the expected libc6, but does not show the "Filename:" entry
but nevermind I can work around that in my scripts,
although using `apt-cache show' would make my scripts smarter :-)

I am using Debian GNU/Linux 4.0, kernel 2.6.18-4-k7 and libc6 2.3.6.ds1-13.

APT::Default-Release "stable";
