I agree with you. However, as a Release Team member, I also want to 
prevent packages from being out-of-sync for too long. So, what I suggest 
in this case is to temporarily disable the test on armel until we have 
figured out how to fix the situation. That way the package can migrate 
to testing, without making the situation much worse there.
