A Prisonner of the dependency hell

Hello Debian release team,

I need to attract your attention on bug #310490.

This show a pure woody system that cannot be upgraded to sarge
using the recommended way witout basically removing KDE.
This bug is 100% reproducible, but I have not yet completly
tracked the problem, though I have seen pretty awkward behaviour from
apt. In particular 'apt-get install fontconfig' fails with a message
claiming that defoma cannot installed while defoma is up-to-date.

Upgrading with dselect work much better.

I did not try yet to upgrade using aptitude in interactive mode.

Bill. <ballombe@debian.org>

Imagine a large red swirl here.
