Default emerge output confusion regarding upgradeable packages

Hey Folks, this one has me confused....

I use http-replicator, but that's not directly related to my problem,
it's just how I discovered it. I occasionally prune the http-replicator
cache by emptying every system's distfiles directory, then run "emerge
-fe world" to download only the current distfiles from my
http-replicator system. Afterwards I delete the files from the
replicator cache and copy the distfiles over from the systems to the
replicator cache directory.

I usually do a pretend run first (add pv to the emerge command) to see
how many packages I'm dealing with. On this one system, I see odd results.

Robotech paul # emerge -pve world
These are the packages ...

(Huge snip here!)

Total: 1017 packages (3 upgrades, 1014 reinstalls), Size of downloads:
1,780,810 kB

Fetch Restriction: 1 package (1 unsatisfied)
Portage tree and overlays:
[0] /usr/portage
[1] /usr/local/portage
[2] /usr/portage/local/layman/sectools
[3] /usr/portage/local/layman/berkano

The fetch restriction is realplayer, and expected. The three upgrades
are a complete surprise. I can't figure out why they're there.

[ebuild U ] dev-python/dnspython-1.6.0 [1.5.0] USE="-examples" 98 kB
[ebuild U ] x11-apps/xcursorgen-1.0.2 [1.0.1] 88 kB
[ebuild U ] dev-lang/yasm-0.6.2 [0.6.0] USE="-nls" 1,230 kB

"emerge -pv --update --deep --newuse world" doesn't want to do anything.
"emerge -p --depclean" doesn't want to remove anything.

Adding "t" (emerge -pvet world) to the first command yields this
(related) info:

[nomerge ] net-p2p/bittorrent-5.0.9-r1 USE="-gtk"
[ebuild U ] dev-python/dnspython-1.6.0 [1.5.0] USE="-examples" 98 kB

[nomerge ] x11-themes/xcursor-themes-1.0.1

[ebuild R ] x11-libs/libXcursor-1.1.9 USE="-debug" 230 kB
[ebuild R ] x11-libs/libXfixes-4.0.3 USE="-debug" 210 kB

[ebuild U ] dev-lang/yasm-0.6.2 [0.6.0] USE="-nls" 1,230 kB

The above shows the only instances of dnspython/xcursorgen/yasm in the
entire output (checked with grep).
The "upgraders" (dnspython, xcursorgen, yasm) are not in world, nor is
xvid. The three packages (bittorrent, xcursor-themes, mplayer) at the
top of the trees are in world.

Two of the three are direct dependencies of packages in world, so they
should show as upgradeable even without --deep.

What am I missing/doing wrong?
