Following is what Debian Squeeze, or apt-cache policy, thinks about versioning.

Should there be both the 3:33:3.3.8d  3:3.3.8-d in the repos at this time? When I 
do an 'update' on my system, 3:3.3.8-d always wants to be installed ...again. I 
have put  3:3.3.8-d on hold as a work around, just wondering if both opies of the 
package need to be in the repos.
