I don't generally do the update from inside dselect, and I still use
dselect-upgrade from outside of dselect, and I haven't had any problems.
What problems should I be expecting?

(I have a cron job which does `apt-get -q update' and then `apt-get -qdy
dselect-upgrade'.  I used to use upgrade instead of dselect-upgrade, but
I changed it so that if I do select something in dselect it will be
downloaded by the cron job.)
