I traced it to this curious condition:
pkg.desired.sourcePackage() == false &&
pkg.desired.sourcePackage().picked() == true
How? Well, it turns out that the defaultversion placeholder object used,
amongst other circumstances, when a package is has no source package, is
returning *true* to picked()!
Robert, how do you think this should be fixed?
