Forgetting about the backport, this is still reproducible if I just 
install packages directly from unstable, which is what I currently have 
installed. Squeeze and unstable are apparently close enough that this does 
not pull in any additional dependencies other than the packages from the 
ffmpeg source package. Pretty much everything below with version number is 
4:0.6.1-5 is from unstable, I think.

Of course, it is entirely possible I screwed up when switching from my 
locally compiled packages to the packages in unstable.

If you want me to give you information about my backport of the ffmpeg 
packages I built from the unstable ffmpeg source, I'd have to do it over, 
because I don't remember the details, but it was comparatively 

Can you tell me if this problem shows up on unstable? If not, it is just a 
problem at my end, and, frankly I'd expect you to close this immediately. 

Output given below.

# dpkg -l libav\*

Question: is there an easy way to obtain a list like below, but with
the origin of the packages?
