How was this a problem in Ubuntu? At first sight this seems to be an
advantage to me, since when that happens we know that all the reverse
dependencies finally build with the new library and there are no
urgent RC bugs left any more.

Did the new packages not have strict enough versioned build
dependencies, so that they built too early and failed?
