I don't know what "s-p-u" is.

All I know is I have this obsolete package installed.
# aptitude search ~o
i A libmysqlclient15off                             - MySQL database client library
# cat sources.list
deb http://ftp.tw.debian.org/debian experimental main contrib non-free
deb http://ftp.tw.debian.org/debian unstable main contrib non-free
deb http://ftp.tw.debian.org/debian-multimedia unstable main

You can't blame me for making a mess of the package system.

# aptitude purge libmysqlclient15off

OK. Never mind. I looked and looked, and finally found


# dpkg -i libmysqlclient15off_5.0.51a-24+lenny2+spu1_i386.deb 
dpkg: warning: downgrading libmysqlclient15off from 5.0.84-1 to 5.0.51a-24+lenny2+spu1.

And that fixes the bug. But your whole package system is a m-e-s-s.
