Package: reportbug
Version: 6.2.1
Followup-For: Bug #563804

Hi there.

I've got sid in sources.list but disabled.
The version of coreutils I have installed is 8.5-1
When I type "reportbug coreutils" I get <<EOF

Your version (8.5-1) of coreutils appears to be out of date.
The following newer release(s) are available in the Debian archive:
  stable: 8.13-2
  unstable: 8.13-2
Do you still want to file a report?

Synaptics reports only one available version - the one in stable - 8.5-1.
