Oh *that*!  I misunderstood Andrey.  Yes, I can reproduce this as well.
This is a result of the changed mechanism to switch through the available
and installed versions.  The idea was to switch through the package
versions in order, with "Uninstall"/"Reinstall"/"Keep"/"Skip" at logical
places.  It didn't occur to me that this results in stepping from "Skip"
to "prev".  Hmm.  This needs fixing I guess...
