port outdated show updates, port upgrade outdated say no updates available

Just updated to base 1.9.0-rc1, and switched to sqlite based registry,
and found an interesting problem:

$ port outdated
The following installed ports are outdated:
gcc44                          4.4.1_0 < 4.4.4_1
$ sudo port -u upgrade outdated
Error: No ports matched the given expression

any idea why port outdated is saying that gcc44 requires an update but
when I try to perform the update there are no matching ports? If I
specify the portname, i.e. gcc44, the upgrade starts as expected.
