I think sometimes kernel brings in other stuff unless I rely strongly
on backports, which I would rather not do for a production server ...
vanilla release is best for me I find...

It turned out I had a very old udev on my sarge
system that was messing up the upgrade because
the new udev did not like it.
so i did:
dpkg --purge udev
apt-get install udev
apt-get install -f
and I was ok.
thank you !

I agree, I actually disabled udev myself for all of my sarge servers. I have
gone back to it for etch. It seems more stable now.
