Default Source package giving binary packages with different version?

This is a bit strange:

gcj-4.6-jre-lib 4.6.0-4 has the following dependencies:

Depends: gcj-4.6-base (>= 4.6.0-12), libgcj12 (>= 4.6.0-12)

However gcj-4.6-jre-lib, gcj-4.6-base and libgcj12 all have the same
source gcj-4.6. So, I wonder whether the above makes sense (currently
gcj-4.6-jre-lib is uninstallable because all the available versions
are 4.6.0-4). Can a binary package have a different version from the
corresponding source package version?

Why not? Are you suggesting that sharing a source package means they shouldn't
depend on each other? This is a common occurrence.

If there's a bug with dependencies, file a ticket. Unless you're in testing.

The fields don't have to match, but the versions will never (AFAIK) differ.

Please look at the condition on the versions.

gcj-4.6-jre-lib 4.6.0-4 depends on gcj-4.6-base (>= 4.6.0-12).

So, if a source package gives binary packages with the same version,
such a dependency can never be satisfied since 4.6.0-12 > 4.6.0-4.

Why unless in testing? (BTW, I'm in unstable.)

So, it appears that there is a bug in the dependencies.

Actually I've just seen that the versions can differ, for instance:

Package: xulrunner-1.9.1
Source: iceweasel (3.5.19-2)
Version: 1.9.1.19-2
[...]

The source package is iceweasel 3.5.19-2 and the binary package
xulrunner-1.9.1 1.9.1.19-2 is generated from it.
