I assume you mean 2.6.15 and 2.6.16 and are talking about your
system based on grml 0.6.

No, looks reasonable. Most stuff is kept back because of the big
upgrade to Xorg 7.0. So just run 'aptitude update ; aptitude
dist-upgrade' and check what's going on. :)

They are relatively good but absolutely terrible.
