Huh? Yes, parallel-fetch is enabled. But I do not see how this would change 
a thing?

No, they were updated in that night's world update, after the KDE 4.6.2 
update had been masked.

So do I, though I usually start with eix -Iu --only-names. Well, in fact it 
was more like eix -I | grep '^\[U', until someone recently posted the 
--only-names option for eix. But I realize this method has a problem, it 
also finds stuff with different slots. This does the trick: 
UPGRADE_TO_HIGHEST_SLOT=false eix -I | grep '^\[U'


Now that I look at the output I find some stuff that has updates pending, 
but emerge -DautvNj --with-bdeps=y @world does not pick them up. And 
depclean does not want to remove them.
An example is dev-lang/spidermonkey, needed by www-client/elinks (with the 
javascript USE flag being set).

And yet another strangeness: emerge -DautvNj @system wants to install 
virtual/mta (as a dependency of app-crypt/gnupg), emerge -DautvNj @world 
does not.
