because it can be fixed by running the upgrade in several steps?
feel free to raise severity if you feel this is RC, but I wouldn't hold
up the release for this issue.

In any case, Moritz has localized this issue:

j...@galadriel:~$ sudo chroot chroots/lenny/
r...@galadriel:/# apt-get install libavformat52 libavcodec51
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
libavcodec51 is already the newest version.
libavcodec51 set to manually installed.
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  libavformat52: Breaks: libavcodec51 (< 3:0.svn20090303-1) but 
0.svn20080206-18+lenny1 is to be installed
E: Broken packages

The breaks is in place to force apt to not install libavformat52
together with libavcodec51; The corresponding changelog entry is here:

ffmpeg-debian (3:0.svn20090303-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * The libavformat52 now links against libavcodec52, which breaks
    applications that *ALSO* link against libavcodec51. Adding a
    Breaks: libavcodec51 should prevent this and (hopefully) Closes: #516885.
