Aptitude "#Broken: 4" message -- Confused!

Dear friends:

Just for the fun of it, I downloaded and installed "Aptitude", At the top on 
the menu it says:

Aptitude 0.2.13 #Broken: 4 Will free 9375kb DL size: 13.9

This appears on the third line of the menu BEFORE I actually use it in any 
way. Does this really mean that I have four broken packages? This couldn't be 
true. I checked apt-get update carefully and Synaptic. Both clearly say: 0 
broken packages, etc. There is no question about it. If so, then what does # 
Broken: 4 mean, please. 

This is really making me anxious. Would really appreciate a clarification. 

Thank you so much in advance.
