I would rather suspect that this is a result of JonY having declared the
4.9.2-1 release as "test" in order to preserve 4.8.3-2 as "prev".  Since
setup still doesn't know whether you've had a test version installed or
not (it just looks at the version numbers and the designators in
setup.ini) it seems to have decided that the user had a test version
installed and tries to keep him at that version.

Looks like we really need to move installed.db to a version 3 format
that records the provenance of the installed packages.  The pending
switch to the SHA512 checksums would be a good occasion for doing that
switch as well.
