I had a rather frightening apt upgrade experience some moments ago. I
installed a bo system which is similar to my hamm system
(dpkg --get-selections on my hamm system and --set-selections on the
fresh bo system).
I looked briefly at the summary what to install and remove and punched
Here's the output from the simulated run after reconstruction of
Updating package status cache...done
Checking system integrity...ok

Remv emacs [auctex elib ]
Inst emacsen-common [auctex elib ]
Inst elib [auctex ]
Remv libc5 [lsof trn compface wget fetchmail gzip zgv sox libpng1 at
man-db ... and another hundred packages]
apt-get removed libc5 and that was the end of the upgrade (machine was
broken and I had to reconstruct libc5 from another partition, no big
deal just the testing partition :-).
I'll send the /var/lib/dpkg/status info in separate email, Jason.

What's the railroad to me ?
I never go to see
Where it ends.
It fills a few hollows,
And makes banks for the swallows,
It sets the sand a-blowing,
And the blackberries a-growing.
