they compute dependencies and/or priorities differently. I have a
laptop with mostly testing and a few unstable packages. I switched it
from aptitude to apt-get. And the desktop with stable (AKA woody) was
switched from apt-get to aptitude.
Whey I switched from one to the other, all of a sudden, they started
replacing packages right and left. It took several iterations of
install and judious use of --force and some cross your fingers and
allow deletion hoping all will be well eventually.
