Package: aptitude
Version: 0.4.10-1+b1
Severity: normal

aptitude causes the X session to freeze for about five seconds each
time I start it using "sudo aptitude update" or "sudo aptitude search
xyz". The session does not react to keyboard and mouse input, and
animations in other windows freeze momentarily. After that everything
works again.

If I first su to root and then do "aptitude update" it does not freeze
the session.

I've only noticed this on my i386 laptop, but not on my other amd64

Ok, I'm happy to consider this resolved (though I'd love to know the
details of what specifically changed..).
