Well, at least you can't complain about that in this case - the new libltdl
had its SONAME upgraded, which caused the package to change correspondingly.

This is not a critical issue, it's just a matter of convenience. Another
method to install the lenny-backports freeradius on karmic is just to fetch
the old package from and install
it with dpkg. It's inconvenient only because you need to fetch it manually,
which is something apt normally does.

     2. That which causes joy or happiness.
