I would guess that you have some packages installed that recommend or
suggest vim-tcl or pure-ftpd, and there's possibly an aptitude setting that
asks aptitude to install suggested or recommended packages. Since vim-tcl
replaces vim-gtk, aptitude would want to install vim-tcl and remove
vim-gtk. However, if vim-gtk was not installed automatically, then it
shouldn't be trying to do this. One reason it might try, however, is
because vim-tcl provides something that vim-gtk doesn't. If the version of
both that aptitude is dealing with don't both provide gvim, then there's a
package bug in there somewhere.
If you want to track this down, look at the reverse depends on vim-tcl,
until you come to a package you installed. Perhaps it is the culprit.
