Lubuntu Trusty daily update choices misconfiguration



I have noticed an issue with the configuration for the choice of updates in Lubuntu
Trusty daily a few days ago. I have just resynced with todays daily a moment ago with
zsync and I am again testing it in Virtualbox.

Now I have started it, opened Synaptic and looked into the menu Settings > Repositories >
Tab Updates and this is what I can see now: the first three lines are selected, including
"Trusty proposed", which should not be ticked, if I believe what I am used to see.

is by removing the proposed.list file. (Or moving it out of the way). But eventually it
will be recreated. (By ticking again the option, which then can't be unticked… )

What do you people think? Is it an expected behavior (for what reason then?) or is it a
