Could you try the "Reload" button in Synaptic, or "apt-get update"  
from command line, and try again? I made some late dependency changes  
just for the sarge version which also changed these packages' names  
(to agzsi_2.0.r1365-1sarge_i386.deb and  
accessgrid_3.0.2-1sarge_i386.deb respectively).

I hadn't tried that, but did so just now (is it really 2.4? I could  
only find 2.3). It looks like there's a name clash for Quickbridge,  
so its probably easiest if I make a change in the AG3 packaging -  
later on today. I was hoping to to avoid an extra compat package but ...

Until then you'd have to deinstall your AG2 package to try the AG3
