Bug#638856: [pbuilder] fails to create with option --distribution experimental:

Package: pbuilder
Version: 0.201
Severity: important


I am trying to create a chroot environment using the experimental
distribution option:

$ sudo pbuilder --create --basetgz /var/cache/pbuilder/experimental.tgz --distribution experimental

But it fails with the following error:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 aptitude : Depends: libapt-pkg4.10
            Depends: libept1 but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

AFAIS, libapt-pkg4.10 is not being installed, while libapt-pkg4.11 is,
but aptitude depends on libapt-pkg4.10.

I attach the full log.

In addition to this, I must say I have no problems if I try to create
the chroot with '--distribution sid' option.

Thanks for your work!
