I think Fabienne is right. Actually when I last tried aptitude under
plane root I didn't notice I lost my internet connection (which I'm
regaining until now), so I thought aptitude hanged again...
I'll fork this message into separate ones then since I have 2 issues
now, not exactly related to vim, :). aptitude+sudo as non root not
working, and "su" not working at all...
