Do you have mindi installed? Otherwise I cannot see a package in
sid/experimental that would pull in linux-image-2.6-486.

No, but please run "aptitude -s -D full-upgrade" to figure out why
linux-image-2.6-486 gets installed.

which I want to avoid, because it adds to the time to do the upgrade
and I am only interested in Debian's 2.6.33, which is still in
experimental.

Can anyone think of a way around this?

Bingo. It's mindi. The funny thing is I install mondo(with mindi) from
upstream because its support on Debian has fallen by the wayside:

current is 2.2.9.3-1 and debian still has 1:2.2.7-2.1.

Thanks a lot!

Two patch levels (2.2.9 vs. 2.2.7) is fallen by the wayside? Really? It
looks like some of those changes even got integrated into the package -- there
was an NMU for it (Debian revision 2.1).

Depending on the scope of patch level changes on this project (x.y.z -> x =
Major, y = Minor, z = Patch level), I don't think missing a few is a big deal.

is the last Debian update from upstream.
2.2.9.3-1 was announced April 16, 2010, which I use. That is 7.5 months
without activity. Depending on what the change is from 2.2.7 to 2.2.9
that might be a big deal.

^^^^^^^
Instead of speculating, why not look up the changelog/release notes?

I bet you already have installed the linux-image-2.6-486 package which is a
virtual one which points to "whatever is the highest current linux-image for
the 2.6-486 branch". This is usually quite usefull since it avoids you to
know what such current package is.

Since you don't want to get such a "most current package", remove the
linux-image-2.6-486 one if it's in fact already installed. From then on
you'll need to specifically look for and manually install any new higher
kernel on that series, but that's exactly what you want, isn't it?

Cheers.
