pacman will "upgrade" from any version to this version. If a user adds a
new version to his local system for testing, pacman will always
"upgrade" to the older one. Considering that such a package may stay in
core for quite some time, this is unexpected behaviour.

If the version problem was outside of testing, it would justify adding
the force flag - however, as the "problem" is confined to testing, I
consider it a minor annoyance that shouldn't be worked around in such a
hackish way.
