Default debian_version=sqeeze/sid in Ubuntu 10.04.1?

That is the distribution that that Ubuntu 10.04.1 was derived from;
Ubuntu is not created from scratch. Debian forms the firm foundation
on which Ubuntu is built.

More specifically, the majority of Ubuntu is built from Debian Sid with Ubuntu patching as needed to make it Ubuntu. The particular package that provides /etc/debian_version is "base-files" which has been patched quite a bit by Ubuntu developers, but apparently not that file.
