Looks like the repositories just needed a day for the hash database to 
get updated for this particular package.  The update went just fine this 
afternoon, with the 'proposed' repository still enabled.  I used 
"apt-get dist-upgrade" in order to not skip the kernel updates.  So far, 
so good.

Thanks, everyone.
