Wait a second!
Now that I looked for it, there seems to be no binary (or even source)
package named "libmysqlclient" in Debian!

How did you end up with the /etc/apt/preferences file you sent me?


Anyway, I've got good news for you: I managed to reproduce the bug, and
I think I figured out how I can fix it.
I am currently preparing the modification and I should begin testing it
soon...
