Just a moment ago I have upgraded to pidgin-data

cannot install pidgin 2.6 anymore now:
Out of curiosity, why didn't you stop it to uninstall your pidgin
The same problem hurt me a while ago too.
Isn't the apt-get upgrade command made to avoid this and apt-get
dist-upgrade command to force it ?
I'm using update-manager (I mean the stock Debian stable GUI utility for
upgrades). I don't know if it follows apt-get upgrade or dist-upgrade
behaviour, but I'm pretty sure it didn't warn me that anything would be
unistalled. Maybe because I force backports like this:
$ cat /etc/apt/preferences
Pin: release a=lenny-backports
I know that http://www.backports.org/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=instructions
recommends 200, but I swithed to a higher value because 200 does not
make synaptic prefer backports, for me.
