I just checked xfe's dependency list:

  xfe depends on libfox-1.6-0
  libfox-1.6-0 depends on libcupsys2 (>= 1.2.7)
  libcupsys2 (1.3.10-2*) depends on libcups2

and libcups2 contains

*) 1.3.10-2 is the version installed on my machine.

My apt prefers "testing" - this is probably a "stable only" issue.
