No. I've never used the interface for anything (nor do I particularly intend
to.) I just suddenly started using aptitude instead of apt-get. I had
installed a lot of different stuff along the way without that happening, so
something went wrong somewhere for no obvious reason. I can't explain the

I did. It cured it. I was just bemused about the whole thing though. So
much for it reading my mind.

I guess I'll deal with it if/when the time comes.
Thanks though. At least I know there's a way to manually cure this sort of
thing if I ever bother to learn its interface.
