Actually that's seems a coincidence.
I've just downgraded all packages built from the apt source package
(except apt-doc :-) to 188.8.131.52 from testing and this behaviour persists:

It is interesting all these packages are built from the same source
package (gcc-4.9), but not all of the packages built from that source
package are affected -- especially gcc-4.9 itself is not affected.
But gcc-4.9/4.9.2-10 was uploaded already in December 2014. So that
upload is surely not the trigger.
But gcc-4.9/4.9.2-12 has been uploaded to experimental on the same day
as apt/184.108.40.206, so the observation that it happens since the
apt/220.127.116.11 upload is correct -- just not related.
doesn't show anything obvious related to packaging which could confuse
So no further idea what could have triggered this behaviour.
