Thanks. In the mean time I've think I've narrowed it down.
Each time it runs do-release-upgrade sticks the name of the local mirror in:
# sources.list fragment for pre-requists (one with countrymirror, one
deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu feisty-backports
It'll overwrite whatever is there. And, of course,
us.archive.ubuntu.com does have feisty.
I tried the trick in https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeProblems
of setting the ip address for us.archive.ubuntu.com to the address for
old-releases. That didn't work because because the nslookup ip address
doesn't actually resolve to the same place as old-releases.ubuntu.com.
