shouldn't tell apt to map binary package names to source packages

Bug #275446 reported by James Westby
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

When using "apt-get source" to retrieve a tarball the source package
name is passed. apt will assume this is a binary package name and
look up the source package for it, but we pass the source package
name. This causes failures if there is a binary package named the
same as a source package that doesn't build it. --only-source disables
the lookup, and so it should be used.
