Yes, as transmission in gutsy-backports wants transmission-gtk (and
transmission-cli) >= 0.93.dfsg-2~gutsy1. For amd64 the version of
transmission-gtk in gutsy-backports is already 1.00-1~gutsy1 (while for
i386 it is still 0.93.dfsg-2~gutsy1). The problem is that the newer
transmission-gtk (for amd64) wants transmission-common = 1.00-1~gutsy1
which isn't published yet. It's waits (with the other packages for i386)
in the NEW to be accepted by the archive admins and get published.
This problem should resolve itself once this packages gets accepted.
