Hmmm... I don't think uploading something to stable is the right way to go. Whatever the
mistakes are in current stable packages, we need to handle them when updating. I'm sorry
I don't have a lot of time right now to have a look, but I will do ASAP.

I'll give it another try. So, to recap, currently:
 * updating from 4.1.2-1+b1 to 4.1.2-2 works, but
 * upgrading from etch's 4.0.6-2.1 to 4.1.2-2 fails

Is that correct?
