Security update mistake?

Yesterday, there was a security announcement recommending upgrading the
kernel to, but synaptic does not automatically suggest this
upgrade. The new kernel image is available in the repository, but not
automatically upgraded to. 

I believe this is because no upgrade is available to linux-generic,
which still is version and does not depend on the new kernel.
To me it feels good to let a meta-package select what kernel I should
use, but now that does not seem to be the best option now.

Is this a mistake in the security update process?
