Bug#1705: dselect has a strange

Package: dpkg
Version: 1.0.5

If I start up dselect, choose "select", and hit return without making
any changes, I wind up with the following screen.  I am not able to
fathom the purpose of this screen, nor am I particularly interested in
removing these packages from my system.  [Of course, it's plausible
that if I removed these packages then re-installed them that this
artifact would vanish....]
