Jim, I think your problems may come down to this part of the apt-cross
manpage:

-u|--update
          Force the user-specific apt-cross cache to be updated. Note
that all sources for this suite on the specified architecture will be
erased before the package cache is updated. If /etc/apt/sources.list
does not contain a source for this suite, the updated cache for this
suite will be empty. Use -m|--mirror to specify a source to be added to
whatever sources are available for this suite in /etc/apt/sources.list.

Note the bit about "if sources.list does not contain a source for this
suite". Can you confirm if this could be your problem? I can then look
at fixing that in apt-cross 0.0.6.

emdebian-tools doesn't use the --mirror functionality within apt-cross
- if you have been relying on that, this would result in empty cache
files and $choice being set to zero.
