Just wanted to let you know that experimental in sources list does not
seem necessary to trigger the bug, but having newer versions of some
(any?) packages installed does.

The problem does not appear on my pure sid system, but does appear on a
system with sid and some third-party repositories (mysql, deb-multimedia
or opera, for example).
That system does not have nor never have had experimental in sources list.
On that system, the problem persits after disabling all the third-party
repositories, leaving only sid sources list.

Is there any other additional info you'd like me to provide?
