Sarge--mjpegtools and mplayer conflict

UPDATE: This thread seems to be moot. This morning I just went ahead with a reinstall, and lo and behold, it works. I have no idea what I did, but now there's no conflict. Weird stuff.

I recently installed sarge on a computer, and it works great. In the spirit of parity, I decided to install it on my other computer as well, using the same installer, and attempting to recreate the same environment. I have succeeded mostly, but I'm having problems with installing BOTH mplayer AND mjpegtools on this computer for some reason.

When I attempted to install mplayer-586, it said I had to install libarts-alsa, libvorbis0, and libdvdread2. I attempted an apt-get install libarts-alsa, and in order to install that it had to completely remove KDE. I allowed this, since I don't use kde, and went ahead. Next, I did an apt-get install mplayer-586 and it said I still needed the other two packages. I installed libvorbis0, and retried again. This time it worked, but had to remove a bunch of tools (I believe libqt and some other video codec-related stuff). Then I installed w32codecs, libdvdcss2, Next, I tried to install mjpegtools:

shoes:/home/marc# apt-get install mjpegtools

The following packages will be REMOVED:
  libvorbis0 mplayer-586
The following NEW packages will be installed:
  libmjpegtools0 libquicktime1 libvorbis0a libvorbisenc2 libvorbisfile3
0 upgraded, 6 newly installed, 2 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 0B/1158kB of archives.
After unpacking 4297kB disk space will be freed.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n] n
Can anyone tell me why these two packages and their supporting packages could conflict? Here's my /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb testing main contrib non-free
deb-src testing main contrib non-free

deb testing/updates main
deb testing main
deb stable main
I am at a loss, and I'm new enough at debian's packaging system that I'm not sure how to work around this. If someone has a suggestion to "start over and do xxxx" I'm open to that--I just installed this and have nothing invested at all. Thanks for any help--
